108: How to Get Help for Mental Illness // Sarah McKenna

Last week in the first episode of this series, my sister Sarah McKenna and I talked about strategies you can use in your own self-care in day-to-day life if you are struggling with depression and anxiety. Today we are going to talk about how to get help for mental illness. We hope this episode will be a blessing to women who are struggling and don’t know what to do.

Sarah’s three takeaways for how to get help for mental illness:

1) Don’t be afraid to try medications

2) Therapy is your friend!

3) Find a creative outlet (and remember, creative doesn’t just mean visual arts! This can be musical, cooking, etc.)

I am so grateful for this month’s sponsor, Shine CosmeticsI love this high quality, long-lasting makeup, and I use it every single day for my super simple makeup routine. (Which you can see outlined here.)

My absolute favorite product is the BB Cream, which is like a mix between tinted moisturizer and foundation. It’s lightweight but with great coverage, and it has SPF 15! I also love their Lip Lasts which really do stay on all day.

This makeup would make great stocking stuffers or gifts for friends this holiday season! Use the code 3IN30 for 10% off!
