MindPHL New Year’s Resolutions

After the merry gatherings are over and the decorations are put away, it’s easy to get the post-holiday blues. But the beginning of a new year brings the momentum to make changes in our lives for the better. Some resolutions — like getting in shape and starting a new diet — can feel intimidating. Wharton Professor Angela Duckworth has some good tips for self-motivation in this podcast, part of the Behavior Change for Good Initiative at Penn.

The Power of Talk: Erasing the Stigma of Suicide

Sometimes, news of suicide can feel like an enormous shock – people frequently say that there were no signs. Expressing feelings of depression and suicidal thoughts is stigmatized in many circles, which discourages people from getting the help they need. Paying attention to small changes in your family and friends’ behavior — changes in eating, sleeping, working routines — can give you insight to check in with them.

National Codependency Awareness Month

Co-dependency refers to a condition that affects a person’s ability to have healthy relationships. People with codependency often form relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive or abusive, and are often the result of families affected by alcohol or drug misuse. Co-dependent behavior can happen between romantic partners, family members or even work relationships. Professional counseling can help. Contact Philadelphia DBHIDS for assistance.
