Overcoming Stress and Depression as a Young Woman

As a 20-year-old woman, I know how overwhelming stress can be, and how it can spiral into depression if not addressed. I have found that reaching out for help and finding healthy coping mechanisms has been crucial in managing my mental health. Whether it’s talking to a therapist, finding support from friends and family, or engaging in self-care activities, it’s important to prioritize mental well-being. It’s okay to not be okay, and seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness. Remember that you are not alone in this struggle, and there are resources and people who care about your journey towards healing. Stay strong, and know that there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel.
