Free Mental Health Printables

Mental Health Printables

free mental health worksheets for adults

 I make a lot of free mental health worksheets for adults. They are all instant downloads & all PDFs. Some of my mental health printables do cost money if they take me a long time to create. 

There are some calendars and other mental health printables for tracking. Keeping track of habits is a good way to make yourself accountable. It’s really helpful if you want to change your lifestyle, a bad habit, or just stay focused.

For me personally; the smaller the goal, the better. Making huge goals is daunting for me & I’ll want to give up quickly.

Don’t let it get to you when you miss days or weeks of tracking. It’s just human nature & expected.

Things come up, life gets busy & change takes time.

I try to make a variety of journaling and other mental health printables because I think writing about things helps organize them & allows us to make sense of things. 

A lot of trauma and grief is complicated. We sometimes have a lot of different feelings towards the same person or event. This is especially true if one of your parents neglected or abused you. 

It’s a terrible experience. We feel lost, ashamed, guilty, left behind, resentful & heartbroken. Holding the feelings in prevents us from processing them, which prevents us from progressing in life.

You might not be a person that enjoys talking about feelings (most of us aren’t) but there are still ways to sort them out.

A lot of dysfunctional families avoid the truth and overlook problems. Dysfunctional homes follow the rules of


Don’t Talk, Don’t trust, Don’t feel


I make mental health printables to help reverse the damage of following those rules, such as

  • Loss of connection with our true self
  • Trauma lock
  • Doubting our intuition
  • Overlooking our own needs
  • Self-destructive behaviors
  • Feelings of unworthiness
  • Ignoring red flags
  • Becoming overly passive, leading to feelings of resentment
  • Inability to say no
  • Black and white thinking
  • Starving for affection
  • Unwarranted guilt
  • Ridged thinking/views
  • Addiction to chaos
  • Substance abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Personality disorders
  • Fear of conflict
  • Low self-esteem
  • Poor emotional regulation
  • Inability to ask for help
  • Attachment issues
  • Maladaptive daydreaming
  • Ineffective coping mechanisms
  • Perfectionism
  • Stunted development
  • Hypervigilance
  • Overprotectiveness
  • Micromanaging tendencies
  • Repetition compulsion
  • Lack of identity
  • Stuck in a victimhood mindset

If you’re a child or someone still living in a dysfunctional home you can quickly feel trapped & hopeless. Journaling can be a good outlet to release the family secrets without receiving backlash.

I try to use cognitive behavioral therapy in most of my printables. The main focus is to change unwanted and dysfunctional thoughts. 

CBT can help for all of the things I listed; anxiety, low self-esteem or people pleasing, etc.

 30+ Pages of Grief Journaling For People That Lost a Parent as a Child


Our thoughts influence our feelings, which influence our actions. It becomes a cycle that can keeps us stuck in life.

We often subconsciously find the worst aspects of our parents/abusers in friends and significant others. One theory is that we hope to get a different result this time.

We hope we are good enough to solve our partners addiction because we were never enough to solve our parent’s. We try to persuade & change our partners habits of domestic violence, trying to master all of the skills we didn’t have as helpless children.

We try to manage more than we’re capable of as a desperate attempt to prove to ourselves that despite the chaos, we do have control. We become perpetual victims. We confuse pity with love. In the process we often turn to addiction, gambling, constant working, etc. 

We inevitably burn out & eventually even hurt our friends, family & kids. We hate to admit it but many of us end up repeating the cycle. Don’t feel too bad. You were doing the best you could with what you were given.

The mental health printables I make are just tools to help us learn about ourselves & make positive changes in our lives.

ACOA changed my life. So many others feel the same about this program.

Don’t be worried if you’re not from a family of alcoholism; alcohol aside; there are tons of people that are just as welcome. 

I prefer the in-person groups personally, but there are tons of virtual groups too.
