The LBEB Mental Health Series

Below is a collection of videos I made on various topics regarding mental health, including depression, suicide, my developmental, and the comparisons of mental health issues like you’re trading Pokemon cards. See the videos and their descriptions below.

I get pretty personal and introspective in my video today, and I want to discuss my learning/developmental disorders, and how they have shaped me as a person, a lifter, and a business owner. The most important thing you can do if you have these things is to talk to someone about them. If you know someone who suffers from them, the most important thing you can do is listen.

You aren’t alone, and there are resources available for you to use, to help you through your trying situations.
Here are some links that explain in a little more detail about my own issues, and how you can re-purpose them into positives, rather than negatives in your life:

A few months ago, I made a video about my mental illness, and how it has shaped my existence. I decided to make a followup video regarding mental illness, and discuss how opening up to others about your issues can cause the listener to think it’s a “competition”, because they know someone else who has a “worse” problem, so yours isn’t that bad. Mental illness is not a competition, and that is what I discuss in this video. Thanks in advance for taking the time to watch it.

In the latest installment in my mental health series, I have decided to discuss a topic that I spend a great deal of time dwelling on; suicide. There has been a great deal of death in my life this year, some voluntary, some not, and combined with the suicide of my uncle before I was born, I felt it was a good topic to bring up. I also discuss how this culture of “suck it up/tough it out” can directly contribute to feelings of isolation, which can lead to suicide. I also discuss the hypocrisy of this culture, which will, in turn, tell people that those who say “suck it” are not going to be safe people to open up to. Physical ailments are easy to understand, because you can SEE them. Mental issues are not so visible, and can be easily dismissed or mocked, which further leads to feelings of isolation. Mental health is just as important as physical health, and I feel that these things need to be discussed, in order to make well-rounded individuals, which will, in turn, make for a better society. Thanks for taking the time to watch this, let me know your thoughts in the comments.
