  2. Your fears and anxieties will follow you everywhere you go if you don’t seek treatment.
  3. Drugs and alcohol will only make your mental health issues worse.

  5. Just because you may be a celebrity does not mean your immune from the devastating effects of mental illness.
  6. Money, fame, and success will only go so far when dealing with your mental health.

  8. Addressing the reasons and concerns why a person won’t get help for their mental health issues is the best route in convincing someone to seek treatment.
  9. There is no quick fix in dealing with your mental health issues. It will take some work and persistence on your part.

  11. Your main goal is to focus on getting better and not to please others in your life.
  12. Knowing what helpful techniques worked in overcoming your past mental health struggles will help you be better prepared for the next time you struggle.
  13. Surround yourself with supportive people rather than those who give you a hard time when dealing with your anxieties, addictions, and depression.
  14. Regardless of your present situation, things do not stay the same. Everything changes over time and this includes your current mental health problems.
  15. Determining the source of your fears and anxieties is half the battle in getting your life back on track.
  16. There are always other options rather than suicide.
  17. You can’t predict the future with complete accuracy regardless what your fearful thoughts may tell you.
  18. Blaming others or making excuses will not help your mental health situation.
