In many ways, mental health is just like physical health: everybody needs it and we need to take care of it.
Good mental health means being generally able to think, feel and react in the ways that you need and want to live you're life. But if you go through a period of poor mental health you might find the ways you're frequently thinking, feeling or reacting become difficult, or even impossible, to cope with. This can feel just as bad as a physical illness, or even worse.
Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year. They range from common problems, such as depression and anxiety, to rarer problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
The simple answer is NO! Everyone at some point in their lives will suffer with their mental health. Experiencing a mental health problem is often upsetting, confusing and frightening. If you become unwell, you may feel that it's a sign of weakness, or that you are 'losing your mind'. These fears are often reinforced by the negative (and often unrealistic) way that people experiencing mental health problems are shown on TV, in films and by the media. This may stop you from talking about your problems, or seeking help. This, in turn, is likely to increase your distress and sense of isolation. However, in reality, mental health problems are a common human experience. Most people know someone who has experienced a mental health problem. They can happen to all kinds of people from all walks of life. And it's likely that, when you find a combination of self-care, treatment and support that works for you, you will get better. At Crystal Life Counselling we can help!
This animation explains what mental health problems are and how they can affect us.
“I didn’t think I had an issue until it was too late, and suffered a breakdown at work. I could have got help much earlier – it's never too early to seek advice”
Martin helped me to find my voice again and gave me the confidence to deal with my issues.
For the first time in my life I found someone who actually listened to what I had to say.
Great service, I didn’t have to wait long, and Martin was unlike other counsellors I’d seen, he totally focussed on me and my needs, thank you.
I’ve been able to talk about my feelings for the first time in my life, thank you.
Becca listened to all my worries and feelings and made me realise I can cope, I will use what I learned in our sessions throught my life
