Rebecca Contreras has been through it all.

🧠In our conversation, she shares how mental health is the real pandemic in America.

🤕Since the C-Pandemic, depression has skyrocketed.

🤕WHO says global anxiety and depression increased 25% due to C-19 pandemic.

🤕Brown University says depression rates tripled and symptoms intensified during C-19.

🤕In my newsletter, I shared that children’s anxiety and depression have doubled since C-19.

🥀Suicide rates went up more than 30% in half of the states since 1999.

🥀One of the main factors that contribute to suicide is relationship problems (42%).

⚠️We are not meant to isolate.

👥The human species is a community-oriented one. It’s why we have failure-to-thrive deaths with babies when they are left without love, touch and community.

⚠️It’s not an easy topic but we must bring awareness to this area.

🌥Mental health is hard. Depression is extremely debilitating. Getting out of bed is unbelievably difficult.

🌟I struggled with it for years until nutrient-dense meats and my faith changed my life.

🔦We can heal. And one way is bringing awareness to the matter.
