ep #9 - Are Depression & Anxiety on The Rise? Ask Kati Anything!
The audience questions for Ask Kati Anything ep. 9 are: What can one do if small tasks feel impossible or out of reach? Simple things like getting out of bed, basic hygiene, making a decent meal, etc. How do you tell your therapist you are super depressed if she thinks you have been doing so well? I really struggle to make decisions, even small silly ones. How can someone get better at decision-making, especially if they have anxiety, depression, or other mental illnesses that add to the difficulty? Hey Kati, can you talk about depression/anxiety getting worse with the coronavirus and how to prevent mental health from getting really bad again with all the stress going on? Hi Kati, I identify as a Christian and there seems to be a big stigma of "hide your mental health issues" in various religious communities. What are some ways that those of us in these different religious communities can help to reduce that stigma? Hi Kati, I'm currently in school to become a social worker- as I enjoy helping people out. However, I often get frustrated with myself because I feel like I can’t truly help others when I can't even help myself. My question for you would be… Do you struggle to help others when you're going through a rough time yourself? If so, how do you cope with that? Why when I’m an adult and I seek my parent's approval and permission on things? It’s like I want to do what I want because I am an adult, but at the same time, I feel guilty for not listening to them.
