Talking about our mental health

By November 6, 2016Uncategorised

It’s hard to talk about our mental health. Particularly if we are having mental health problems. For people experiencing depression, anxiety and other mental health problems it can be tough time. Talking about how you might feel under those circumstances can be difficult. Keeping it to yourself isn’t very helpful and not talking can also make us feel even worse. A person should not have to feel they are alone and talking about things and finding support from family and friends can be beneficial. Talking about it with health professionals can certainly help too and be an important step along the road to recovery.

Talking about mental health is such an important step. Beginning the conversation helps us to understand and explain our situations and begin to reverse the negative experiences and feelings.

But, despite the increased awareness of mental health in recent years, there is still stigma attached to them that means there is still a long way to go before mental health conversations can be a comfortable norm. At Retreat South conversations around mental health are important conversations and we want to enable our clients and prospective clients to feel they can have those conversations.  We aim to provide you with support from the moment you contact us.  We understand the issues you face and can start the ball rolling with you to to understand the mental health issues and every other aspect of your life. We know how difficult those conversations can be and hope that they can become new beginnings on the path to recovery. Healing can begin with that all-important conversation. It can begin when you have that conversation with family and friends, your your health professional and also when you have that conversation with us. So, contact us today and let’s have that conversation.
