"My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness"
In the early days of neuroscience, they thought the brain stopped developing at a certain age. 5, 10, 20, etc.
Good news! Modern neuroscience has proven that the brain never stops changing and developing. In other words, if you’re struggling with mental health issues, you’re not stuck with them forever because it’s possible to change your brain no matter your age.
