How Do You Cope?

The New York Times ran a video series last year, “Lives Restored,” portraits of survivors of mental health battles and their coping strategies. They produced a few videos that featured the people struggling and talking about how they cope.

I hope you’ll watch at least one of these short (too short) videos. I especially like “A High-Profile Executive Job as as Defense Against Mental Ills.” I like that she retreats to a hotel, that she understands the value in what that affords her – the comfort and stillness she needs.

There’s a kindness in her approach. And that she can use her dog’s sensitivity as a tool for monitoring her mental health is inspiring.

 Lives Restored, The New York Times ran June 2011 to December 2011.
