The Best Way to Deal with Mental Health Issues
Mental health is a state of well-being enabling each person to develop the confidence to reach his or her potential. Practically this means being better able to cope with the normal stresses of life. Mental health includes good emotional health, psychological resilience and social wellbeing.
It is important to remember that mental health problems are common and treatable. One in four adults will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. In any given year, one in six people will experience a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression.
Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time which sometimes need help and support from someone who is not a family or friend. They can range from mild to severe and can be short-lived or long-lasting. Mental health problems are not caused by one single factor, but rather a combination of biological, psychological and social factors.
Along with other professionals as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor I am trained to think and work with unhappiness and distress when this is affecting your mental wellbeing. This can range through from anxiety and depression, childhood trauma, relationship difficulties, obsessive thoughts and fears, sleeplessness and many other mental health difficulties.
