May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to recognize the importance of mental health and well-being. Psychological health is a vital part of the overall strength of someone, though it is often overlooked and stigmatized in our society. Mental Health Awareness Month aims to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and provide support for those who may be struggling with psychological issues. We, at Bio-One NW Indianapolis, believe in the motto: "Help First, Business Second". We change clients' lives every day. What may seem like an average job for us, is a huge step for a client to take no matter the situation. Our quick response and quick project completion turnover are life-changing; sometimes as little as a week!
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately one in five adults in the United States experience psychological illness in a given year. Mental illness can take many forms, including anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among others. It can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status.
Mental Health Awareness Month provides an opportunity to educate ourselves and others about the illness, and to take action to support those who may be struggling. Here are some ways that you can get involved:
Bio-One NW Indianapolis specializes not only in the technical aspect of cleaning, disinfecting, and disinfecting, but also helping our clients along the way. Our owner, Dr. Richard Weinblatt, a retired police chief, has 40+ experience and knows firsthand how helping people solve their problems can change lives.
Mental Health Awareness Month is an important reminder that it is just as crucial as physical well-being. By raising awareness, reducing the silence, and providing support, we can help those who are struggling with issues to get the help they need and deserve.
If you have any questions you can reach out to us at any time. We are always here to help.

The holidays are about joy but if you find yourself feeling down, here are some ways to avoid that.
1. Exercise on the regular - your body has a way of balancing itself out when you give it what it needs. Make time for a 10-20 minute walk or take a swim to boost your endorphins.
2. Be aware of yourself - keep track of bad thougts going on inside. Don't let them take over and ruin your day. Try thinkig of 5 things you're thankful for instead.
3. Choose who you want to be around - maybe some of your family isn't quite a treat, even during the holidays. If someone brings you down, you don't need to spend time with them.
4. Don't look at facebook - what's worse than not experience joy? Seeing other people's joy. Just because people are posting happy pictures doessn't mean that's what their whole life is made up of. Keep your mind positive and stay off of facebook!
5. Embrace new traditions - sometimes what messes you up most the expectation you see in your head. If everything isn't how you imagined it, try embracing what's real in your life.
