Mental Health Awareness - Part 2
Continuing our series on Mental Health Awareness- Mental Health problems take many forms, from severe to mild, but all can affect how we function and our quality of life. Generally, there is more than one factor that contributes to the development of a mental health condition. Risk factors are things that increase the chance of developing a condition (Mental Health America) and include: Traumas- physical (car accident) or emotional (loss of a loved one), genetics, our biology and brain chemistry, lifestyle (such as chronically poor sleep and diet, lack of exercise), and substance use (drug and alcohol use affect mood/sleep/relationships and alter parts of your brain). Many mental health conditions can improve with help and support. The first options are learning about the condition and gaining tools to improve symptoms. More in-depth treatment, including medication, can effectively relieve emotional pain and prevent the deadly fallout of suicide. Mental health counselors, Hotlines, your healthcare provider, church support, or friends and family can all be sources for help. Sometimes we can’t change the stressors in life, but we can learn how to tolerate and react to them better, making them less overwhelming and more manageable. Mental Health changes can affect how we function in life, and most concerning is that sadness, grief, depression, and drug and alcohol problems can lead to increased suicidal thoughts and actions. The good news is that there are protective factors that may decrease the chance of developing a condition or may balance out a risk factor. Some examples of protective factors include physical health and healthy behaviors, social and family support, problem-solving skills, pets, and positive attitude/hope. Also, there are agencies and hotlines to help. Locally Columbia County Health System Clinics Behavioral Health 509 382 3200, ED for crisis, Blue Mountain Counseling at 509-382-1164. Columbia County Crisis Line- 509-876-0626 and national Suicide Prevention/ Crisis Lifeline 1-800-273 TALK (8255).

Mental Health Awareness

May was Mental Health Awareness month. It is fitting that as a community, we focus on Mental Health as we suffered the tragic loss of a youth recently to suicide. This is the beginning of a series of mental health related articles from Columbia County Health Systems and Blue Mtn Counseling. We aim to bring awareness to mental health and to have continued awareness every day and every month of the year, not just for one dedicated month. Our goal is to reach out and connect with the community as a form of prevention, to engage with you before the pain is so bad that taking your life becomes a viable option. Although losing a youth tears out our hearts, we are finding that suicide is increasing, and it is impacting our students, doctors/medical providers, our American soldiers, those with low pay or high pay, job stressors, and those with access to lethal means like medication and firearms. A 2020 survey of pandemic essential personnel (medical workers, teachers, grocery workers, EMS, police, caregivers etc.) showed up to 21% had considered suicide and Trauma/Stressor-Related Disorder symptoms (TSRD). The CDC reports that in 2020 suicide was the 2nd leading cause of U.S. deaths among ages 10 to 34 years old! We lost 45,979 Americans to suicide that year, but 12.2 MILLION were suffering enough to consider it, 3.2 million made a suicide plan, and 1.2 million actually attempted to end their own lives. But there IS help ready to talk! Suicide Prevention and Crisis Lifeline 1 800 273 TALK (8255) **July 16, 2022, will change to dial 988.

In future articles, we will discuss risk and protective factors, clarify what a mental health condition is, ideas to maintain good mental health, and how to recognize when you may need help with your mental health. If you are interested, you may also go to www.mhascreening.org and take online screenings for various mental health conditions. Mental Health America is a great resource for education as well.
