Episode 17: Why You Need a Holistic Approach to Mental Health

In this week’s episode I’m exploring why it’s so important to approach mental health from a more holistic perspective – moving beyond mainstream psychology and the therapy room, to include a more cyclical approach to life, reconnection with nature, and the importance of community.

In this episode, I talk about:

  • Why we need to approach mental health from a community-based perspective rather than only focusing on individual responsibility;
  • The ways capitalism and patriarchy make us feel like crap about ourselves;
  • What it really means to tend to your needs; 
  • How to connect with the cycles and seasons of the natural world, and with nature in general; 
  • How reconnecting with my own form of spirituality has helped me to improve my emotional wellness; and
  • The importance of community and why you don’t need to do this alone.
