LIVEWELL RECOVERY STRATEGIES®

 

TALK TO SOMEONE

Talk about mental health, ask for support, and strengthen

your communication skills to help yourself and benefit others.

 

FOCUS ON THE PRESENT MOMENT

Pay attention, on purpose and without judgment, to the present moment.

Recognize your passing thoughts, cravings, and moods do not define you.

 

EMPHASIZE YOUR STRENGTHS

Challenge negative thinking and develop self-compassion

by celebrating positive qualities that aid your mental health and resilience.

 

GET EDUCATED

Learn about the connection between depression and addictive behaviors,

and be open to all available treatment options.

ANTICIPATE AND PLAN

Identify your triggers, and use your creative problem solving skills, Action Plan, or Crisis Plan.

 

TAKE ACTION

Get out of your head into your life by engaging in activities

that support your mental health and personal goals.

STAY CONNECTED

Avoid isolating by building and maintaining supportive relationships

with individuals, communities, and LiveWell peers.

 

CHALLENGE THE STIGMA

Explore how your culture’s beliefs about depression and/or addictive behaviors

affect how you think and feel.  Share your unique story to empower yourself and inspire others.

 

LIVE WITH A PURPOSE

Dedicate yourself to things that are meaningful to you,

and contribute to the mental health of your peers and community.

DO WHAT YOU CAN, WHEN YOU CAN

Accept the ups-and-downs of managing your moods. Go at your own pace.

Trust yourself through your unique process of change and growth.
