BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — According to the World Health Organization, the prevalence of anxiety and depression increased by 25% during the first year of the pandemic alone. More recently, the National Institute of Mental Health said that one out of five American adults are suffering from anxiety, so much so that a national panel of medical experts is recommending that all adults under age 65 be screened for anxiety.
With more people feeling lonely and anxious and receiving a mental health diagnosis, a new book published by Brave Healer Productions may be launching at a particularly auspicious time. Available as a paperback and eBook, Holistic Mental Health: Calm, Clear and In Control For the Rest of Your Life offers a powerful collection of experts who share their stories and provide effective holistic strategies, tools and practices that can help people be their best selves in spite of mental health challenges.
The book’s lead author is Laura Mazzotta, a therapist with nearly 20 years of experience who came to embrace holistic health-care practices after suffering a chronic illness in 2016. Mazzotta’s chapter in the book deals with feeling worthy enough to embody one’s soul’s purpose.
There are also chapters on how to reduce anxiety in any situation, when to step away and when to step into fear, guiding children to confident lives, the hidden power within anxiety, co-creating peace within your home and transformational journaling for generational healing.
Contributing to the book are Pam Bohlken, Marcela Chaves, Vienna Costanzo-D’Aprile, Kelly Daugherty, Cheri Davies, Jenna DiVenuto, Daisy Farrell, Steph Furo, Dr. Bonnie Juul, Teresa Lacorazza, Tammy Lantz, Bonnie Luft, Kelly Myerson, Anita Buzzy Prentiss, Cassandra N. Quick, Gabe Roberts, Dr. Christy Robinson, Mariah Rossel, Corinne Santiago, Darlene Sochin, Katie Steinle, Dr. Summer Sullivan, Katie White and Krissi Williford.
