October 10: World Mental Health Day

In honor of World Mental Health day, which was earlier this week, I decided to share a couple of youtube videos on mental health topics. This first one, by ASAP Science, describes the causes of anxiety symptoms, and discusses panic attacks and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).

This second one is a TED talk that I feel is VERY important. It is from the perspective of an African man who came to the United States for higher education. In Africa, he describes that mental health was not taken seriously, but when he came here, he learned how important it was. Such a good talk.

I hope these videos are helpful in your understanding of mental health.
