You're not alone - one in two people in the Middle East suffer from a mental health challenge once in their lifetime!
Anxiety, stress, and depression are the most common issues people face simply while going through life. This can affect both your personal and professional lives, and can lead to other mood disorders or relationship issues; be it in marriage, while dating, or even at work. Other people struggle with OCD or trauma from past events.
Either way, the mental wellbeing spectrum is broad and can be treated through a variety of methods such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), integrative therapy, acceptance and commitment (ACT), psychodynamic, EMDR, or mindfulness-based therapy. There also specialities such as the Gottman method, Gestalt, eclectic, and Adlerian. Some people start by adopting healthy coping mechanisms such as meditation, going to the gym to exercise, or doing yoga (which are all great when adopted holistically and consistently). When given the chance, therapy and counseling can change lives!
