Remember that you have control over living well.
Find a routine that works for you that includes a healthy diet, exercise and regular sleep patterns.
Stay close to your support network. Engage family, friends, teammates and your faith community. Think about joining an online community.
Be realistic and mindful of your needs and know your limits.
Keep a wellness log and monitor your progress.
Ask for changes if your treatment plan is not working for you.
Stick with it; most therapies and medications take time to work.
Try to be flexible with your treatment plan, which may change.
Try staying away from drugs and alcohol. This is not always easy, so find strategies that work. Using drugs or alcohol to feel better is harmful to you. If you use alcohol or drugs, be honest and tell your therapist or doctor because it affects your care plan.
Do your best to stay positive. Surround yourself with positive messages, people and activities. This will help you to feel better.
Continue doing what you love: reading, sports, writing, nature walks, creating art.
Know you are not alone. Lots of youth and young adults live with mental health conditions.
