Social Media: Today’s Modern Enemy

We live in a modern society where technology surrounds us every second of the day. Our cell phones remain in our hands throughout the day, sit next to our beds at night, and most kids these days don’t know what to do without the phone in their hands. Video games have replaced going outside, and social… The post Social Media: Today’s Modern Enemy appeared first on BayArt.

The Stigma Around the Dark Side of Mental Health

Today I want to talk about something important, but is often discussed in a negative way. It’s something people who do not experience it often don’t understand. Those who do experience it are often put down, harassed, and bullied. I want to talk about self-harm. Like all mental health issues, self-harm is a stigma that…

Depression: WWIII or Tug-a-War?

As many people with depression know, living with it is tricky. You can have good days and bad days. For me, sometimes it could go on for weeks or months before I find relief from the depression. It’s always about managing it, learning to enjoy the small happy moments, and trying to remember you’re worth… The post Depression: WWIII or Tug-a-War? appeared first on BayArt.

Woebot, the cool new mental health tool!

I was browsing twitter (great habit huh) the other day and I stumbled upon this post about a bot, that is designed to help you through some rough times. The creators are very strict about the fact that Woebot is not a therapist, and is not a substitute for your mental health care. I was very happy to read…
