Check out my new YouTube Channel and Udemy Course- “Mental Health in the Real World” and “All Things Mental Health”

In honor of National Suicide Prevention Month, I’m launching my YouTube Channel and Udemy Course. I have been working on these projects for some time, but feel ready to finally advertise.

Mental Health in The Real World

“Mental Health in The Real World” is a faceless YouTube channel in which I share as much mental health knowledge as I can. My goal for the channel is to empower viewers with the knowledge and tools necessary to become mentally health-savvy and advocate for their mental well-being. The first series that I made on the channel is the “Discovering the Symptoms” series. In this series, I highlight the main symptoms of various mental illnesses. I also include ways to be compassionate to those suffering from these illnesses.

The next series that I’m working on is my “Suicide and Suicide Prevention” series. The goal will be to post as many videos as I can this month to promote awareness during National Suicide Prevention Month. I plan to make future series about how to get help for mental illnesses, types of therapy, types of medication, and various other topics that may be helpful to anyone trying to navigate around the world of mental health. I encourage you to subscribe, like, and comment so that this content can help as many people as possible.

All Things Mental Health

A few months ago, I started receiving ads about a company that would help health professionals create courses. Long story short, they were basically taking advantage of health professionals. However, it motivated me to create a course on my own. The “All Things Mental Health” course was born.

This course was designed to help learners know when and how to get mental health help for themselves and others. One in five adults in the United States will experience some form of mental illness. Moreover, more than half of adults with a mental illness didn’t receive mental health services in the previous year. The course aims to increase awareness about mental health conditions and provide students with the tools to lessen the burden of such common illnesses. The first half of the course outlines when to get help. There are overviews of the most common mental health conditions: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, substance use disorders, eating disorders, and personality disorders. The first half of the course also has information about suicide prevention and safety planning. A safety plan is an important tool to have handy in a time of crisis. The second half of the course outlines where to find help and what to expect in various treatment settings. These treatment settings include standard appointments, behavioral health areas of emergency departments, and psychiatric inpatient units. There is information about when to start therapy or medications and what to do after those treatments have started. Similar to my new YouTube Channel, the ultimate goal of the course is for learners to be able to advocate for themselves and others when it comes to finding and receiving mental health treatment.

At the end of the day, there’s a limit to how many people I can help at work on a one-on-one basis. I truly became a physician to help others, and I’m hoping my newest endeavors help me get one step closer to helping as many people as possible.
