Individuals and families of all kinds flock to the prepper mindset for all kinds of reasons. Among millions of preppers are those with one type of challenge or another. Many of them are dealing with mental health issues, either their own or those of a loved one.

Depression, social anxiety, PTSD, and others often have their roots in life experiences (environmental), as well as possible genetic predisposition.

In these cases, medication is almost always part of the treatment and handling change is often a huge challenge.
