How To Manage Mental Health with Coping Skills

After years of listening to people I’ve counseled through the years, most conversations are about failed relationships, health issues, and the chaos of life. Today most of us live an over-stretched lifestyle. Therefore, it is important to find ways to cope with difficult situations such as a stressful job, unhealthy relationship, or a health situation.

There are some who may say, “Oh I can drink alcohol to cope.” Some may use drugs or abuse those around them. When we find a better way to cope with the challenges, we find ourselves in a better place with our loved ones and those around us.

What does it mean to cope? Coping means managing or get through a problem or stressful situation. I just want to show you a few ways to help to build healthy coping skills. It is important to balance your spiritual and mental health. The word of God tells us, “But it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding.” Job 32:8

We can balance our spirit by praying every day and asking the Lord for guidance and clarity. Coping skills for our mental health can include:

•Journaling – writing down thoughts or even setting short- and long-term goals for yourself and your family.

•Walking-meditate and think on positive thoughts as you are walking.

•Enjoy a special hobby.

•Breathing Techniques- to calm anxieties.

•Communication- learn how to communicate effectively by listening and reflecting

•Music-listen to soft calm music.

•Create a self-care moment for yourself.

Incorporating prayer with mental health coping tools daily will enhance your mental health and bring peace to your day. Coping skills will help you get through those tough moments in your life. “I have told you those things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33. 


We simply do not affirm ourselves or others enough. To affirm means to share a positive truth about yourself or others.

Listed below are a few affirmations you can speak to yourself or share with others:

•I am wonderfully made. “I praise you because I am fearfully, and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139: 14.

•I am Loved. “We love because he first loved us.” I John 4:19

•I am healed and made whole. “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” Proverbs 16:24.

•I am purposed. “I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills His purpose for me.” Psalm 57:2.

•I am confident. “Arise, shine for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” Isaiah 60: 1.

•I speak life. “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21

Let’s Talk About Spirituality and Mental Health

"But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth." (Ex. 9:16)

Here at Purpose Found, I incorporate faith into mental health. This is not just a religion for me; it’s all about beating inner struggles using a holistic approach.
