Today, the UpRoryUs channel has been launched officially. Thank you for joining me on this journey to make mental health educational materials available to everyone!
My name is Rory, and I’m a mental health educator. I started UpRoryUs in an effort to take knowledge and skills which are normally only offered to those with access to healthcare and make them available to everyone. This is not a medical advice platform. I cannot diagnose you, your family, or anyone else. I also cannot tell you the best ways to treat yourself or your symptoms. All I can do is offer skills that work for some people, or that work sometimes. How you use these skills is between you and any providers you have. Always consult a physician before changing your care program.
UpRoryUs will have weekly videos on Mondays, and a matching post like this one will go live at the same time. If you prefer to subscribe to an RSS feed, you can use the website’s URL, or if you prefer Youtube notifications, you can subscribe over there.
The categories of content you can find are always available in the sidebar, but include: Emotions, Exercises, Crisis, Grounding, Q&A, and Relationships. The first few weeks of material will focus on providing exercises for you to practice, such as meditations or thought exercises. After those videos are all live, there will be posts on Grounding which will use those exercises, and accompanying education, to show ways to start gaining mastery over your life.
Thanks for joining me on this adventure. Please remember to be kind to yourself and others.
