Healthy coping skills key to flourishing despite cumulative stress

Coming through several years of traumatic experiences, many Americans recognize that their mental health is not what it once was. In fact, 90 percent believe that the country faces a mental health crisis.

Numerous studies and surveys point to elevated levels of stress and mental health disorders among most demographics, and even an increase in the suicide rate last year.

Rosecrance experts recognize that mental health and mental illness are sensitive, complex topics. Cumulative stress and traumatic experiences can lead to reliance on unhealthy coping tools or symptoms of mental illness that require help to manage.

Rosecrance President and CEO Dave Gomel, Ph.D. addresses the state of America’s health in the latest “On Your Radar” podcast, which is available on Spotify.

“We have been through one of the most traumatic events in multiple generations, and while some of us are stronger for it, we’re struggling in many ways,” he says. “If you feel discomfort, please reach out and don’t let the fear of stigma keep you from flourishing.”
