I'm passionate about mental health awareness and actually everyone should be considering that mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population, 46% of teenagers, and 13% of children each year. One in five U.S. adults will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. You never know who might be struggling with their mental health. It could be a family member or close friend, your neighbor, the person in the cubicle next to you, the teenager taking your order at your favorite fast food place, your child's teacher, or the little girl you see at the supermarket shopping with her mom.
The two most common mental heath conditions are anxiety disorders and mood disorders. More than 18% of adults each year struggle with some type of anxiety disorder. These include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, generalized anxiety disorder, and phobias. Mood disorders such as depression and bipolar depression affect nearly 10% of adults each year and are characterized by difficulties in regulating one's mood.
One interesting way of treating such disorders is sand tray therapy, which is a powerful therapeutic tool that allows adults, adolescents, and children to express their thoughts and feelings when words along are not enough. After all, people think not only in words but in images. In addition, sand tray therapy can be a tool for personal growth and the development of creativity.
