Medication is a topic I see a lot in the mental health world that people view as the only solution to anxiety and depression. Guess what, folks – that’s not true! Medication is a great tool to help you manage mental illness, but it’s not the end-all be-all solution for managing those things. That takes work on YOUR behalf! Find out more in the episode!

Show Notes:

  • My background on medication
  • How going off of my medication cold turkey did cause some withdrawal and I noticed a small spike in anxiety
  • Discussion on why I think my withdrawal symptoms weren’t much worse and still manageable
  • Why you need to take the same steps I did
  • Two tips on how you can prepare yourself for a time that you don’t have medication and will still be on your way to mental health success
  • Why you need to take your mental health journey into your own hands
