World Mental Health Day 2017: How To Help

black-man-depression

This year marks the 25th anniversary of World Mental Health Day. Established in 1992, the World Federation for Mental Health has been holding events, raising awareness, and making announcements about mental health conditions. No matter the condition, it is always important to reach out and ask for help, or for loved ones or friends to ask those with mental health conditions if they ever need help. Asking for help or helping others does not make you weak. It makes you stronger.

 

The theme of World Mental Health Day 2017 is “Mental Health In The Workplace.” Most adults will spend a huge part of their lives at work, wherever that may be. The environment in the workplace can influence your emotional and mental health in various ways. Coworkers, employers, or even the office itself can play a role in the development of a mental health condition.

 

Roughly 300 million people worldwide have some form of depression, and about 260 million people worldwide suffer from anxiety disorders. There are lots of people who live with both anxiety and depression. These conditions are the leading cause of disability and cost the global economy about one trillion dollars annually in lost productivity.

 

What Can You Do To Help?

There are many ways to help and to show that you support World Mental Health Day. It can be as simple as raising awareness on social media, or making a banner on a company website. In regards to social media, there are online communities that you can join for help and support. As far as employers are concerned, it is important to establish initiatives to promote mental health, and show support for employees with mental health disorders. Help these employees see the value of the office team and how their work contributes to overall productivity.

 

Join others around the world today by raising awareness about mental health conditions. Let’s mobilize our efforts and help support this global cause. Never be afraid to ask for help, and don’t be afraid to bring up your mental disorder in your place of work. Talking is helping, so don’t suppress what you feel.

    Q: I found out about your website and that you offer different treatments to improve other people's health. My question is that I have a relative, my aunt to be more specific; she suffers from a bipolar disorder which is getting worse and does not improve with any kind of drug. She is getting hospitalized in a mental hospital by tomorrow morning and I do not feel too comfortable with this situation therefore I wanted to ask you about any treatment that you might offer for this type of disorder. I really do not think that hospitalizing her in a mental hospital will do the work, if you could please write back to me by tomorrow. She has tried Reconnective Healing and it seems to help her relax but it does not take the symptoms away.

    A:

    I would recommend that your aunt give our Nerves Formula, Central Nervous System Formula, and Brain Booster Formula and Elixir #6 and Elixer #7 a try for bipolar.

    Q: I recently heard of the concept NLP. I recently purchased your MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and it mentioned briefly NLP. What is the difference between it and your manual?

    A:

    There's no difference. NLP explains how the brain and mind works, thus it's mental science as well. My manual simply covers NLP in addition to Law of Attraction and other dynamics. It's all the same thing!

He is trying to manage, and maintain with these diseases, which is only causing him to sink into a greater depression. What do you recommend?

    Q: Its been a couple of months, but I got around to ordering the Mental Science Manual, and some Activated Carbon. However I have a question and I figured you would be the best person to ask. I wanted to learn more about different herbs and what they do. I plan on going to the library and just getting a book on herbs, but before I did, I just wanted to see if you had a book you could recommend. Maybe that could be a future ebook (I would order it too).

    A:

    Great books that explain the function and properties of herbs include: The Herb Bible by John Lust, The Natural Pharmacy, and The Way of Herbs to name a few. There are hundreds of books on herbs. Just keep searching and you will find all that you desire to find.

    Q: My 14 year old cousin's mom has checked her into to mental hospital. This entire school year she has ben dealing with alot going into high school, and other teen age issues. Her birth father is not in the home but, her mom has a pretty good man, that steps up, and does a good job with her two children. However, she has been battling with her weight, although she wasn't over weight she didn't feel thin enough like the other children at her school. Her mom found Hydroxycut in her room, and all hair feel out. This past weekend went to her mom's boyfriend and told him she tried to overdose on pills to kill herself, because of all the pressure. Her mom had her in therapy behind the weightloss issue, she thought she was ok, until this last suicidal mission. Is there any help or advice you can render. I told her mom that the hospital thing was a horrible idea due to the medication that they will be administering and other brain washing methods they use to further F*** you up so that when you are release you a labeled, and sure to be crazy. D-Herbs at 14 this is insane, her mom has given up hope, and gave her chiild into the hands of the enemy. I am conscious and try to talk to her but it doesn't seem to work.

    A:

    That's an unfortunate situation. Have the mother read the information on Dherbs.com or schedule a consultation so she can speak with me live and direct. These are the only ways I know to help, Beloved. I'm also about to write an article on DEPRESSION, and the DANGERS OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS. Hang in there and know that your cousin wrote her own life script (before she was born), so she is gaining an experience so as to learn a life lesson for her soul's purpose. It doesn't make sense on a lower level, but on a higher level, it all will add up and make sense. God's hand is over everything, even those things that appear bad.

    Q: I was most impressed by your website. The information to support your products and your obvious interest in informing the public caught and kept my attention. As I searched further into Black Seed Tea, the reason for my visit, I noticed your product ALCOHOL BUSTER. The comment of "on the metaphysical level, alcohol consumption also impairs the human aura" although very non clinical, is very much my way of thinking, it got my attention. I read as far as the disclaimer, "the formula does not have the power to prevent consumption of alcohol as only will power and a made up mind can do this." Here's where I step out of character and find myself writing this e-mail. It has been my experience while working with people from all walks of life, who are members of any 12 step program, that a reference to will power as a prevention of anything is a two edged sword. While I agree will power is important in abstention, I believe the person is benefited by using their personal will power to seek help, to commit to recovery, to take care of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. I don't believe "human" will power is the power that prevents consumption. The suggestion that "will power and a made up mind can prevent consumption of alcohol" to a person with an addiction could become a deadly idea. This of course is my opinion, do with it what you feel is appropriate.

    A:

    I feel you in where you're coming from, but I truly believe and know human willpower plays a role in prevention and healing of all disease. The strongest thing humans have is a will. Will meshes with desire in many cases. Both are strong in humans. Now, you're dealing with a person with addiction in regards to your last statement and I can totally understand where you are coming from but the sick person is not exempt from any laws of healing. There is no real or true healing absent willpower to do a thing, a beneficial thing. The addicted person must be first dealt with on the physical and psychological levels and then the spiritual and energetic (getting to the root of the addiction: perhaps a 2nd chakra problem or something hanging over from a past life). All addiction points to spiritual void and therefore the only ultimate healing here is mental or spiritual via mental. As you know, it's mind-body-spirit and all must be dealt with for healing. Will is important in abstention but we don't won't people to focus on abstaining which is usually converted into "can't have" by the addicted person. We want people to only focus on the good, the healthy, what they need and require, not what they don't want or can't have because their subconscious mind will create the situations and circumstances by which these people end up consuming the thing that is insalubrious for them. It never fails. I grew up with an alcoholic mother and plenty of other alcoholics. We want people to have and use willpower to GO FOR the best things for them, will in DOING the right and healthy things for themselves. All healing is ultimately within self. As a man thicket so is he! Peace be unto you fellow metaphysician!

    Q: Hello, I am having some serious issues here. I have a history of depression/anxiety and female problems. About a month ago I had my second miscarriage and after that it seems like my health just went downhill. I was having severe dizziness and headaches and then I started having breathing trouble. The doctors have said it's just bronchitis and my anxiety and that I need to take my meds so I have started back on my antidepressants/anxiety meds. My health doesn't seem to be getting any better. I'm having terrible stomach problems, no appetite, and my nerves are killing me. I'm also having muscle aches in my arms and legs and I'm having back and chest pains, please help me with some kind of advice. I've read through some of your articles but I'm still confused about what to do?

    A:

    When you feel like this it's a sign that you need to reboot your system (body) and you do this by Detoxing your body and eating a healthy diet in addition to positive thinking. Start with our FULL BODY DETOX followed by our TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. Drink our ENERGY TEA while doing your cleanses. You'll bounce back, Beloved.

    Q: Hi can you tell me how much yohimbe is in JACKRABBIT FORMULA and MALE HORMONAL FORMULA. Or can you make me a custom formula without yohimbe. Because I suffer from mental illness schizophrenia and I'm not taking a multi vitamin formula with yohimbe in it but the manufacture told me I can't take it because it will affect my medication I take. The vitamin formula I take is Trojan horse and it has 1500 mg yohimbe per pill I take two pills a day. I want a formula that can help my condition with weak erections, is there some one who can help me thanks.

    A:

    We will not make our formula without Yohimbe for purpose of compliance with Western medicine. Yohimbe is far safer than Viagra. People are more concerned about Yohimbe when they should be concerned about all pharmaceutical drugs.

    Q: My mom is currently in the hospital due to her kidneys being in a state of "not working to well" most of this is due to the many meds that she takes and because of this she is now suffering from high Potassium partly because they are intravenous giving her fluid to hydrate her and at the same time giving her a diuretic to release the potassium out of her body too "WHAT" she's dehydrated and hydrated at the same time. What can I do to help this matter, what kinds of foods, drinks ... please advise and btw, my mom is also on meds for her mental imbalance, schizophrenia.

    A:

    Wow! Drugs/medication just really messes people up! These things can't heal you because your body is not made up of drugs. When people learn this they'll be better off. If the person is going to still take drugs while taking herbs it defeats the whole purpose. On the other hand if the person goes all herbal, all the person has to do is perform the Full Body Detox Cleanse which help the kidneys to cleanse and repair and the entire balance should come into balance.

    Q: I am 47 years old, African American female, whose health has been failing for the past six years (75 lbs overweight, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, poor circulation, long-term/short-term memory loss). I have a uterine fibroid the size of a 23-week-old fetus. Rather take the natural way out. God does work in mysterious ways?I stumbled upon your website today. My plan is to do the Full Body CLeanse first. Please advise me on the use of the Female Cleanse and Fibroid Formula. Can the two be used in conjunction?

    A:

    We recommend that you perform the Full Body Cleanse (and the soak mentioned in the Full Body Detox Companion) for 20 days followed by the Female Cleanse for 20 days, followed by the  Weight Release Kit and Regimen. After you finish your cleanses, your regimen should consist of Fibroid Formula, Weight Release Formula, Electric Greens, and Detox Tea.

    Do not use the Fibroid Formula in conjunction with the Female Cleanse or any other cleanse. Each cleanse must maintain its own set of formulas. Only use the Fibroid Formula once your cleanses are complete.

    Purchase the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual for better and healthier food choices (on the cleanses and while off the cleanses). It is best to optimize your diet in order to achieve the best results and potentially heal yourself from your variety of ailments.

    Q: I just came across this information, and I am VERY CONFUSED! I have recently come into consciousness about my health, origins, spirituality, etc. I am an avid reader of your site, and I am preparing to purchase your Full Body Detox. But, PLEASE TELL ME IF THIS IS TRUE: That on December 31, 2009, we (as a people) cannot buy any herbs, nutrients, without the prescription of a doctor (Codex)? I've been reading many articles, but due to brain overload it's very hard for me to comprehend. Does this mean there will be no more Dherbs.com, or health food stores selling herbs? Also, if you happen to write an article on this can you please let me know about an "urban legend" that there was a "world" meeting among leaders, and Oprah was the only black woman in attendance, and that legislation like Codex was brought into the forefront to decrease the Earth's population. After reading some articles, I could see a connection with this "urban legend", when one stated that Codex could possibly kill 3 billion people. I know you have mentioned it briefly in a Q&A on your site as well as an article on Hybrid Foods, but I am seeking your wisdom and commentary due to your ability to explain in layman's terms. I hope you can answer my questions as myself and many others look to your site for Overstanding.

    A:

    Not true! Don't waste your time worrying about Codex A. Think positive, Beloved! The urban legend is laughable. Many people just like to think negative, so they create negativity in their life. That has nothing to do with Codex A, but their own thinking! You can relax, Beloved!

    Q: Thank you very much for the much needed informative site. I have a question concerning whether paid employment affects the quality of our lives, and health. If you have a consulting, or airline job where you have to fly on a weekly basis for work, can that negatively affect your health and well being? If your short term choice is to keep working the job, what herbs can you prescribe to help one cope and manage the lifestyle especially if one is tired of the travel lifestyle?

    A:

    Travel lifestyle will greatly affect your health because excessive traveling throws off your circadian rhythm. Jet lag is when the plane has landed on the physical ground but your ethereal self is still up in the sky and so you are not all there so to speak. Stay tuned for our article on "Jet Lag." Dherbs.com formulas that can assist in counteracting jet lag include: Nerves Formula, (and/or Tea) and Ethereal Bliss.

    Q: Is there a regime for dementia/Altzheimers like symptoms? My husband was diagnosed hiv+ 6 years ago. He stopped taking medication 3 years ago when I shared all info I could on hiv/aids myth/hoax. Unfortunately my husband is not sure what is true and I am afraid that the stress of this diagnosis has planted the seeds for his current physical and mental decline. He suffers from chronic bronchitis, body aches/pains, extreme weight loss, depression and now has memory loss and is often disorientated in his own home. For the past six months I have been able to get him to eat a predominately raw fruit and vegetable diet. Two weeks ago he was admitted to the hospital because he passed out while taking a hot bath. Several tests were done. We refused to have the hiv test done. Needless to say this got back to his VA doctors who now believe that all of this is due to him being non compliant to taking his hiv meds. In a follow up meeting they now declare that my husband has full blown AIDS and will die in six months if he does not take medication. Can your detox regime help now and what about the dementia-like symptoms? Is there a product/herb that can help this? I can make sure that the diet is raw.

    A:

    AIDS and HIV is a full blown hoax used on the ignorant, fearful, government-dependent, irresponsible, immature, and unconscious American people (95% of them, at least) to control them and make money off of them in the process. I would suggest your husband start reading as many of our free health articles as possible to help change his mindset which is the only thing that can kill him, of course with corresponding physical actions. Your husband can save his life by performing the FULL BODY DETOX kit, followed by the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, followed by the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. After these kits, if he takes 5 capsules of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD 5-6 times a day and drink 1-2 cups of RAINFOREST TONIC TEA and BRAIN TUNER TEA, he will be amazed at how he feels. Dementia: take 3 capsules of BRAIN TUNER daily! There's so much your husband can do to reclaim his health and life. But it all starts in the mind. We are here to assist if he so desires the assistance.

    Q: My father had prostate surgery and I got the Male Health tea do you think that his body will heal and he will get better even though the doctors messed him up with that surgery and he cleanse all the time and eat fruits and vegetables?

    A:

    I say have him perform the Total Male Cleanse (TMC). You say the surgery messed him up ... how?

    His daily regimen (after the TMC) should consist of (1) prostate formula (3 capsules daily), Male Hormonal formula (3 capsules daily), and Male Health Tea (2 cups daily).
