MENTAL (& PHYSICAL) HEALTH CONDITIONS
We often see a distinction often made between 'mind' and 'body'. Though, the two should NOT be thought as separate when taking in consideration both mental health and physical health.
WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS THAT CAN AFFECT US?
The term emotional trauma refers to a variety of conditions and disorders which impact our mood, the way we think and our behavior. These conditions can affect our day to day lives as well as impacting our ability to relate to others.
- 1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness each year.
- 1 in 20 U.S. adults experience serious mental illness each year.
- 1 in 6 U.S. youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health disorder each year.
- 50% of all lifetime mental illness begins by age 14, and 75% by age 24.
Can just one event cause emotional trauma?
Emotional trauma conditions develop due to many different influences and life events. Those conditions are outlined below:
- PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Social Isolation and Loneliness
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia
- ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- BPD Borderline Personality Disorder
- Eating Disorders
- OCD or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders
- Schizoaffective Disorder
Maintaining our mental health and well-being is essential through every stage of our life. And depending on the severity of the conditions above, professional medical assistance may be required. I want to stress that overall mental health is a priority of House of Attilius to help combat, but only from a preventative side.

Attilius Eight revisits traditional foundations of southeast Asian Internal, External, and Visual Arts which are still a benefit to our daily lives and the world around us today. Our present and our future wellness of the mind, body, and spirit requires regular maintenance and discipline for us to properly function and realize our True Victory.
The “Eight” refers to the use of the martial art, Art of 8 Limbs (Muay Thai/Boran)(Feet, Hands, Elbows, Knees) and the Buddhism Noble Eightfold Path (Right View, Right Thinking, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Diligence, Right Mindfulness, Right Concentration).
Both disciplines are used along with meditation, qigong, and visual art to help you balance your mind, body, and spirit- to stain and dye us completely so we may become eventually enlightened.
*To note, enlightenment is a term that has many different meanings. Here is what enlightenment means at House of Attilius:
Enlightenment refers to the word bodhi, which means “awakening.” The way things really are, and our experience with the way things are is defined as enlightenment. It is the nature of the universe itself and is tied to the way each of us thinks, feels, and acts when we’re aware of and participating. We become aware of how everything interpermeates everything else, and that even the most difficult things are lit from within by the same undivided light.
