mental + emotional health

Something I hear a lot from women in their 40s and 50s is that they are questioning their sanity—many confess that they feel like they’re going crazy. And judging by conversations I’ve seen on Facebook, a lot of us are turning to anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds.

I loved this exploration of diagnoses and naturopathic approaches to mental health on our own Big Sister Audrey Groeschel’s podcast featuring Dr. Jennifer Bahr. While Dr. Bahr focuses on perinatal mental health, if you connect that with Tania Elfersy‘s comments that there are specific times of our lives as women that we are more sensitive due to hormone shifts, there’s a whole lot of wisdom here!
