TACKLING THE MIND

Everyone has mental health and it affects how we think, how we act and how we feel. It also helps us determine how we handle stress, make life choices and is important at every stage of our lives from childhood all the way through to adulthood. Making friends, holding down a job, keeping fit, these are all normal parts of everyday life, but what happens when our mental health restricts us from doing these things and we begin to struggle with completing our normal daily routines?

When we begin to find it difficult to manage our thoughts and feelings, and we start to become overwhelmed with respect to daily stresses; this indicates we are developing signs of poor mental health. We can become confused, feel fatigued and pull ourselves away from social situations. Sometimes we are unable to concentrate and become easily distracted. Mental Health doesn't discriminate and it can affect anyone, regardless of what your age, race, gender or social background is. Many of these people are people who we know and who we speak to on a regular basis. The common problems being Anxiety, Depression and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder). 

Should early signs of poor mental health start to develop, early intervention is key to recovery. Early intervention can help reduce the impact of mental health problems and help build the tools required to overcome the issue. Should these feelings start to occur then it's time to try and do something to tackle the mind and reach out for help.

More often than not, the stigma that attaches itself to mental health comes from a family member, a friend or a colleague. This can have a huge impact on peoples path to recovery. There is no widely accepted definition of the term recovery.  ​For some people recovery means aiming to be symptom free. For others it might mean managing symptoms well enough to live a meaningful life. They key thing to understanding about mental health is that not only is recovery possible, but also very likely.
