For me coping can be done in healthy ways and destructive ways. Drinking till I passed out was one way to cope with the voices,anxiety and depression. Staying sober and taking my meds is how I cope right now. The second is way harder but it keeps me out of the hospital.
I think one major thing that helps was accepting I need help to function better. It’s good to be as independent as possible , but also not to let stubborn pride stop you from accepting help and support when you need it.
