Mental Health Matters: Psychologists in Primary Care

Posted by Dr. Sayra González Huertas on Feb 19, 2021 3:23:53 PM

 

How are you feeling?
We recently closed the book on an incredibly challenging year, and many of us are still catching our breath. If the thought of scrolling through your feed and seeing one more piece of bad news is almost too overwhelming, you are not alone.

In the past year, the boundaries which separated the different areas of our lives blurred or seemed to disappear. We took on a variety of roles as some of us became teachers, made-to-order cooks, and household managers on top of our usual work and family responsibilities. We honed the art of multitasking. We bought masks, scoured medical blogs, and watched the news relentlessly. We took great measures to protect and nurture our physical health.

As weeks became months, many of us began to feel the emotional toll of a very atypical time that included the double punch of a global pandemic and a divisive election, both on the island and the United States. Almost out of necessity, many of our conversations moved from the merely superficial to a different level of openness as we acknowledged the cumulative psychological effect of what we have experienced. It has become clear that mental health has to a be a priority if we want to make it through to the next chapter of our story and thrive.

Posted by Leyda Figueroa RD, LND on Nov 14, 2019 5:17:53 PM

If you’re trying to figure out how to create a healthy balance through the holiday season, you’re not alone. The best way to make this Thanksgiving a special occasion is by sharing a meaningful experience with family and friends. The priority should be to connect with your loved ones and share quality time with them. You can do this by being more mindful and conscious of the time you spend together, demonstrating appreciation, and finding some time to play and feel festive.

Empowering Women Towards Better Health

Posted by Elizabeth Sands, MS, CNS on Mar 15, 2019 7:33:09 PM

We've noticed that many of our patients don't make it to their annual gynecologist visit, even when they clearly recognize the importance of this appointment. An annual gynecological exam is a fundamental part of preventive medical care for women, and is critical for identifying any risk factors for disease (cancers, in particular) as well as detecting any existing medical issues. This is an appointment to make, not miss!

Having said this, we understand why it happens. When you're busy balancing work, family, or just life in general, it's very hard to consciously commit to spending hours or more waiting to see a physician, which is typically the case in Puerto Rico. We know you’ve got a lot going on, and the last thing we want is for your hectic schedule to prevent you from taking care of yourself.
