It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.

Whether it’s yourself, a staff member in your business or someone you care about, we have all felt the impacts of a stressful year behind us and the pandemic is still impacting lives everywhere. One of the first things Dr. Rika mentions on the show, is how a key part of identifying a concern or issue is to recognize it is completely acceptable to recognize something is wrong and talk about.

Recognizing the signs or symptoms of depression, anxiety or other cues that you or someone you care about may be struggling with.

Anxiety and depression can present differently from person to person. Kids are especially different. Dr. Rika shares some of the ways these symptoms show up and also gives tips on how to determine whether or not something more serious is going on while being careful to let the professionals do the diagnosing.

How to approach someone you care about or suspect may be struggling.

What to say? How to say it without being offensive or making them feel embarrassed. The importance of creating a safe space to share and not feel judged.
