Welcome to the board! Jodi gave some really great suggestions for herbs to use. Do you mind if I ask you to be more specific about what kind of mental health (i.e. depression, mood swings, etc.)? We can try to help a little better that way.
manic depression, anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive tendancies.
I've been too afraid to try anything homeopathic- i'm afraid i'd end up in an institution again. but i hate putting these chemicals into my body- and into my breastmilk

Well the great thing about homeopathics and herbal remedies is that you can use them along with your meds and with your doc ween off SLOWLY. But you want to ween and with help from your doc. It would be too much of a shock to your system to just come off. These gentle and natural medicines work well with your synthetics and usually won't cause harmful interactions. It is just beautiful if you ask me.
