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.

 

  
7 Ways to Cope with the Holiday Season
The holidays are quickly approaching and not everyone is feeling the holiday cheer.

Make Your Mental Health a Priority in 2016
As the year comes to a close many people look at the new year as a fresh start. People make resolutions to lose weight, eat healthy and save money, but what about mental health? Who wouldn't want to be happier and less stressed? We put so much emphasis on physical health and often ignore the fact that a person needs to be well, both physically and mentally, in order to be a healthy person.

Holiday Eating Tips for Good Mental Health
The holiday season is filled with gifts, get-togethers and tons of food and treats. From cookies at the office to department dinners, we are surrounded by unhealthy food choices and often give in to temptation with the intention of losing the extra pounds in the new year. Of course it’s not wrong to indulge a little during the holidays, but moderation is key. Not only do the extra treats wreak havoc on your waistline, but they can worsen mental health conditions too.

Help for the Post Holiday Blues

It’s a triple whammy. Most of us go from the warmth of Thanksgiving, to the exuberance of Christmas and Hanukkah, right to the excitement of New Year’s – and then what? Then we face the cold hard truth of January and February – the two most barren months of the year.

You are not alone if you feel blue just anticipating next week when all the hubbub of the holidays is over. If you take Google Trends to be an indication of how we are collectively feeling, searches for the words “depression,” “depressed,” and “sad” spike beginning the last week in December and don’t decline until April.
