- Depression – Depression is a mental health disorder that manifests in so many different ways, and you don’t have to suffer a major episode to have depression. Sometimes depression is just feeling depressed and having a series of bad days. Depression can also take root in exhaustion, anxiety, apathy, and fear of being alone.
- Stress and anxiety – Stress is rooted in most of modern of our modern health concerns and can be manifested physically through poor sleep, poor nutrition, and illness, or mentally through worry, grief, or trauma.
