Ways to Care for Your Mental Health

Monday, 23 May, 2022 - 3:16 pm


Mental health matters. This past January The Friendship Circle of Washington launched a new mental health initiative called UMatter. UMatter is designed to empower young people to take their mental health into their own hands, building a network of support around themselves, developing tools, and breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health issues. UMatter has been a great outlet for our teen volunteers and we can’t wait to continue to grow the program. Since May is mental health awareness month, we compiled a list of ways you can care for your mental health. 



#1. Know that you are not alone

Socializing reduces stress levels and we count on friendships for support and a sense of connection and belonging. UMatter can also help you build new and stronger connections with your peers! 


#2. Move your body in fun ways

Finding joy in movement, like jumping on a trampoline, climbing a tree, or riding bikes with friends are great ways to not only move your body, but also connect with your inner child and make social connections. 


#3. Prioritize rest

In order to function properly, our bodies require proper sleep and rest. When you feel irritable or emotionally imbalanced, chances are high that your body does not get enough sleep.

#4. Develop new hobbies

Taking part in activities that you enjoy increases your emotional well-being when you have an interest in them. Joining UMatter is another way you can explore new activities during our monthly UMatter meet-ups. 


#5. Ask for support

One of our missions is to reduce stigma surrounding mental health issues. By making it a regular part of peer to peer conversations, we can build a network of support. Just remember that you can always ask for help.

I saw a comment online testifying how Dr Osato cure her from herpes and hpv and i contact Dr Osato and explain my problem to him and he prepare the cure and send it to me through UPS,which i use it just the way He instructed me and thank God today am a beneficiary to these cure. I went to my doctor for a checkup after 14days of taking the herbs and I did a blood test which i tested Herpes1&2 Negative and my doctor booked me for another appointment after 4 weeks to confirm my result and i retested again after 4 weeks and my result was still Negative and my doctor assured me that the virus is completely gone from my system.

Hi everyone, I’m here to give my own verdict about the herbal cure Dr Osato is sending out to people to cure them of Herpes-1&2 and HIV. Dr Osato herbal medicine is the best remedy for Herpes-1&2 and HIV/AIDS, I was a carrier of Herpes and I saw a testimony on Youtube on how Dr Osato cure Herpes with herbs, I decided to have a contact with him and asked him for solutions and he started the remedy for my health and prepare the herbal cure for me and send it to me through UPS and he gave me instructions on how to use it which i rightly followed and after 14days of taking the herbal medicine i went for a blood test and my result was Negative. I waited for 3months to confirm my result before sharing this beautiful testimony of mine and also to observe myself if i would have an outbreak and nothing came out from my body, i went for another blood test after 3 months of testing Negative and the result still shows Herpes Negative and my doctor was pretty sure i was totally cured from herpes and he confirm with me that I’m free from herpes. All the symptoms of Herpes were completely gone from my body. Thank God, now everything is fine, I’m cured by Dr Osato herbal medicine, I’m very thankful to Dr Osato and i will not stop publishing his name on the internet because of the good work he did for me, You can contact Dr Osato on email: [email protected] Or you can call and WhatsApp him on +2347051705853.
