Don’t forget to love yourself
There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.
(via Wellbeing - Style magazine - The Sunday Times - 30th June 2013)
Most people come to us with a perspective on mental health rooted in ‘illness’ and ‘problems’. The challenge is to shift the perspective to ‘well-being’ and ‘recovery’. Everyone has the capacity for well-being, regardless of whether or not they have a diagnosed mental health problem. I’m trying to promote the view that supporting people in ordinary day-to-day activities can improve well-being and assist recovery. In the past this has been undervalued in comparison with the specialist interventions used within mental health services
