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.

 

  
This Summer, Explore the Upside of Down Time
Traditionally, summer was a time for kids and their parents to relax and enjoy some unstructured days – a chance to decompress, have fun and play. But thanks to the ubiquity of personal technology, as well as the increasing number of scheduled summer activities, the summer can feel an awful lot like the hectic, plugged-in school year for some families.

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.

Mental Health Wellness Week
It’s Mental Health Wellness Week and unlike other awareness days and weeks the focus is on staying well, not the condition itself. Two of the goals are promoting the benefit of mental wellness for both the mind and body and educating people on how to incorporate mental wellness techniques into their daily lives, whether you have a mental illness or not. The best way to stay well is to have good coping skills and build resiliency to deal with life when it throws us curveballs.

A Meditation Approach to Headache Relief
While there are numerous medications available for the various types of headaches, tension or stress-related headaches often respond well to meditation, including guided imagery. At the Chronic Pain and Recovery Center (CPRC) at Silver Hill Hospital, we utilize meditation for headaches to target reductions in frequency, duration, and intensity.
