Mental health issues can cause life to spiral out of control. That’s because our mental health affects our thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and general interactions with the world and ourselves.
When things feel off or especially challenging in the areas of thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and interactions with others, it is time to consider taking charge of the situation and reverse it before it gets worse.
My belief is: ‘To know the problem is to solve the problem’.
I have heard of so many professionals suffering from mental health issues and burnout and the incidence of sickness leave is growing at a considerable and worrying rate. It’s time to consider mental health across the board as everyone can have issues in this area.
The Welsh government is delivering a plan for improving mental health and wellbeing and improving the care and treatment of people using mental health services, their carers and their families.
