Mental illness affects introverts, extroverts, and everyone in between, but for introverts mental illness can be especially difficult to deal with. Its can be hard to reach out for help or to put together a support system so having that special person who understands and is patient is blessing.
As this week is Mental Illness Awareness Week I’d encourage anyone introverted or not who is struggling to take one step towards getting help no matter how small. Personally for me I have found these two tools to be helpful:
- Talkspace – Talkspace is a online therapy service that can be 100% text based or optionally use voice or video chat. Its a great way to get direct help from a licensed therapist completely through text.
- Joyable – Joyable is app that helps people over come depression or anxiety through goals, small tasks, and coaching.
