PBS NewsHour - How we took care of ourselves in 2021

Malinda Hill, a trained art therapist, used colored pencil to create this blue-and-red figure on her last day of in-person treatment for an eating disorder.

Recommitting to treatment 

In order to take care of myself, I made the difficult decision to re-enter treatment for an eating disorder, depression, anxiety and PTSD. I first entered treatment at the beginning of the pandemic but returned to work too soon and suffered the consequences. Additionally, I’ve been sharing my experience with mental illness on social media in hopes that others will know they are not alone and it’s important to take care of your mental health.
