Mental Health Journal Guide- Depression
A journal guide is an important factor in the process of discovering your own strengths and weaknesses, which is also the first step to building on strengths and working on weaknesses! Reflect each week on previous weeks' journal entries, and you'll learn more and more about yourself and your mental health as you progress through the guide over the entire year.
Before you can transform yourself, or even just find contentment and happiness, you must know where to look for gratitude, how to be emotionally intelligent, how to recognize and approach your depressive signs and symptoms, and also how to take care of yourself! This combination of healthy expression is proven to lead to a long-term and strong feeling of improvement from depression and related-symptoms!

"Depression (major depressive disorder or clinical depression) is a common but serious mood disorder. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working. To be diagnosed with depression, the symptoms must be present for at least two weeks." -National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
