Hygiene and the Mental Health Conversation

Every quarter the Indiana Criminal Justice Association (ICJA) sends out its magazine publication “The Comment.” I am pleased to be a member of this association and our CEO, Dr. Nelson J. Tiburcio, is the southern region director for them.

While reading the March 2023 edition I came across an article that I was granted permission to share with SASSI blog subscribers. The article is titled: “Hygiene Indifference: The Symptom We Don’t Talk About” written by Ivory Smith, B.A., B.S. It discusses the connection between hygiene and mental health and contains tips for practicing hygiene during a mental health episode.

I hope you will find the content as valuable as I did and will share it with your colleagues and anyone who may find the tips helpful. You can download a copy of the article by clicking here.
