While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, everyone faces challenges in life that can impact their mental health. We are all experiencing various stressors and change during the COVID-19 pandemic. The good news is there are practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase resiliency. There are also ways that everyone can be supportive of friends, family and co-workers who are struggling with life’s challenges or their mental health.
Solvista Health is highlighting #Tools2Thrive during Mental Health Month. Tools to thrive are things individuals can do daily to prioritize their mental health, build resiliency in the face of trauma and obstacles, support those who are struggling, and work towards a path of recovery. Follow our Facebook page at, Solvista Health Facebook Page, to see posts throughout May offering tools to thrive.
One of the easiest tools anyone can use is taking a mental health screen at, Solvista Health Free Screening when they need answers. It’s a quick, free, and private way for people to assess their mental health and recognize signs of problems.
Another great way to develop #Tools2Thrive is by joining one of our Free Virtual Support Groups via Zoom. The groups are open to anyone in the community and have a range of topics including: Parenting During COVID-19; Physical Activity and Wellness; Substance Abuse and Recovery; Music; Grief Recovery; Cooking; Homework Help for Students; and more. To get more information or to join a group, call us at 719-275-2351.
For each of us, the tools we use to keep us mentally healthy will be unique. But, Solvista Health wants everyone to know that mental illnesses are real, and recovery is possible. Finding what works for you may not be easy but can be achieved by gradually making small changes and building on those successes.
By developing your own #Tools2Thrive, it is possible to find balance between work and play, the ups and downs of life, and physical health and mental health. Remember, Solvista Health is always here for you 24/7, just call 719-275-2351. Crisis help is also available through Colorado Crisis Services by calling, 1-844-493-8255, or text “TALK” to 38255 to connect with someone.
