People struggling with mental health are likely familiar with a range of internal and external obstacles. The effects of anxiety, depression, and more can feel insurmountable at times. Indeed, mental illness affects the way you think, respond to things, and how much energy you have. Furthermore, many people don’t understand mental illness, and they can be unsympathetic and even hostile. That’s why it’s so vital that we all adopt a heart-centered approach when interacting with those affected by mental illness.
