Let's Talk about Mental Health Wellness!
Did you know your neighborhood impacts your sense of community and belonging and determines how easily you can access the things and services you need, including for your mental health? Challenge yourself to examine your world and how it can affect your overall health. Look around, look within – from your neighborhood to genetics, many factors come into play regarding your mental health.
Right now, two groups struggling with mental health resources are Magic Valley first responders and teenagers.
Community partner Float Magic is teaming up with United Way of South Central Idaho to create an emotional wellness lifeline to help ease suffering, improve coping mechanisms, and build resilience.
With your help, we can offer a lifeline to those in our community who need it most. Consider paying it forward to help support someone in our community who needs assistance.
Experienced certified counselors offer Accelerated Resolution Therapy (A.R.T.), which guides the person to replace the negative images in the mind that cause the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress with positive images of their choosing. This is done quickly, most often within one session! Once the negative images have been replaced by positive ones, the triggers will be gone. Nightmares and repeated intrusive thoughts will stop.
With flotation therapy, you'll float in dense saltwater feeling no weight light, or sound, stripping the mind and body of all external stimuli to make room for healing. A large decrease in cortisol levels is shown after floating, proving it's a safe and effective relief for stress, anxiety, PTSD, and depression.
The value of our Emotional Wellness Lifeline is $500 and includes a 1-hour session with a counselor, a 20-minute chair massage, a 60-minute salt floatation therapy session, and a 15-minute rest in a chill space or Zen garden.
