Mental Illness Awareness Week falls on 2-8th October 2022, followed by the World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2022. As we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of the global pandemic, its impact on our mental health continues to take its toll.
This week marks the National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. It is an initiative run by the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) to shine a light on stories of people struggling with an unhealthy relationship to food and our bodies. Although very rarely discussed in the open, eating disorders affect over 9% of the population worldwide.
Globally we are experiencing challenging times, people may feel invisible as they remain isolated, discriminated against, separated from loved ones, restrictions placed upon them.
I want to share something with you that may seem simple in concept yet has a profound impact on our wellbeing and others. What I would like to share is a Transactional Analysis concept called the Stroke Economy, developed by the Psychotherapist Claude Steiner.
As the year comes to an end, and it is an opportunity for us to reflect on all that has happened and take the time to evaluate resolutions for the upcoming year. It is always exciting to consider the next steps in our lives, but we are sorely disappointed when we cannot meet the goals
Mental Illness Awareness Week – Bringing awareness to our mental wellbeing – our collective responsibility
Since the pandemic hits us in 2020, we are talking about mental health way more frequently than ever before. In a way, that has brought a lot of people’s attention to their mental wellbeing. However, it shouldn’t have taken a pandemic to serve as a wake up call in raising awareness of our mental health.
Have these thoughts ever come across your mind? “Why didn’t I do better?” “How could I have missed that point? I’m such a fool…” “I could have seen that coming! If I had been more careful…” etc. Self-criticism is common and it exists as almost part of our daily lives. We criticise ourselves more often
