Tips / Travel

Living with mental illness doesn’t mean you have to stay locked in your room your whole life. It’s okay to get out and see the world. You just have to take some extra precautions to keep yourself safe.

 

Before traveling overseas, always check in with your therapist to make sure you’re in a good enough headspace to travel. Discuss your worries and anxieties about the trip so they can provide you with tips to handle them.

 

You’ll also want to choose the right location. Depending on your mental state, you might want to avoid anyplace too chaotic. While the streets of Bangkok might seem like a fun adventure, they can also be stressful to navigate. Instead, opt for something relaxing like a beach getaway to help relieve your stress.

 

Check your prescriptions before you go. Be sure to take them with you on your travels so as not to interrupt your medication schedule. Doing so while you’re away from home could be disastrous for your mental health. While you’re at it you’ll want to check your medical insurance to see if it covers the cost of mental health treatment in foreign countries. If not, have a look at some travel insurance policies that do, just in case.

 

Remember to take it easy on your travels. It’s never a bad thing to slow down if things are feeling too hectic. Don’t push yourself to see and do everything in a new city in too short a time, otherwise you might burn out quickly. Relax, take a breath and focus on doing things you enjoy.

 

While there are some risks associated with traveling with mental illness, remember there are also many benefits travel can have on your overall mental health.
