Mental Health Support

Mental health doesn’t always mean you have a mental health problem, but having some support will help you feel better about what you deal with.

Mental Health may affect how we think, feel and act if there is a problem there. Given the enormity of the pandemic, it is easy to see why some of us may struggle with mental health issues. Mental Health matters. When the bad moments continue to last, it may be a sign there is a problem.

This year, 1 in 4 people will struggle with mental health issues.

You may need mental health support when:

  • You struggle with anxiety;
  • You struggle with depression;
  • You have anxiety around Obsessive Compulsory Disorder;
  • You deal with Bipolar;
  • You have a Personality Disorder;
  • You’re self-harming, or you have suicidal feelings.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, if life begins to become one big struggle, if you’re struggling to sleep and you’re struggling to focus on simple tasks, having mental health support will help.

Mental health issues can strike at any time, and can become an issue even for people who don’t usually struggle with mental health issues. Us having a good attitude to mental health and other people’s struggles can save someone’s life.

My Conclusion

Always ask for support if you need it. There is no shame in accepting you need help. For those people who need help, please reach out and speak to someone you trust, someone you know will listen, or your doctor. If you’re struggling with that my blog @thecpdiary can help.

Mental health starts with each of us, but first we must recognise we need the help.

  1. Seeking support for mental health is good and can include family and friends. Knowing that someone is willing to listen, such as a friend, family member, or counsellor can help us express our feelings and thoughts.

    Getting the help means we might be able to find better ways to divert our energy, so that we are able to focus on purposeful activities, rather than thinking about the problem.

    1. Thanks. I completely agree with you. It is important for us to understand how we can change our own lives.

      Whilst counsellors are good motivators and they can help us understand, we must understand for ourselves how we can change our lives.

      It is important we are able to connect with our own feelings, if we are to effect positive change. It’s what I have done.

      Not everyone is capable of supporting us and in those circumstances, it is important we find someone who can.
