Silver Hill Hospital Blog

Silver Hill began this blog to share our expertise and begin a dialogue with the public about mental illness. It is our hope that this will help to demystify and destigmatize a disease that has been shrouded in misperceptions, confusion and often incorrect information. We cover a range of topics, from suicide to addiction to gardening, and the importance of nutrition in caring for the brain. 


We hope you will submit questions and comments so we can further explain an illness that affects one in four Americans. If there are any other topics you would like covered, please send them along too.


We hope you will find this helpful, and look forward to hearing from you.

Guided Meditation for Relaxation
The word meditation probably brings to mind that classic image of someone sitting cross-legged with their hands on their knees and palms facing upwards. You might also think that the point of meditation is to tune-out and totally clear the mind. Both of these are common misconceptions. You can meditate anywhere. There is no need to be in a grassy field or on a mountain top and the point is actually to tune-in to your mind and body.
