Depression, addiction, and PTSD all hinder your mental health. In order to really progress and heal from mental health, it is important to be proactive. Besides taking medication and going to talk therapy, it is also important to make sure to put yourself first. This does not mean you have to be selfish, it just means you should be aware of your needs, and make sure those needs are being met. It is also important to speak up if anything about your treatment is unclear to you.
