By increasing the understanding of mental health conditions we hope to abolish stigma.
A powerful story can change a life.
Let us share yours.
- SUPPORT: What is Stress?What is stress? Where does it come from and how can we manage it day to day so it doesn’t impact our wellbeing? So, what is stress? According Oxford Languages the definition of stress is: “A state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances.” Delving deeper into the causes of stress, according to medlineplus.gov, there are two types of stress; Acute and Chronic. Acute stress: “is short-term stress that goes away quickly. You feel it when you slam on the brakes, have a fight with your partner, or ski down a steep slope. It helps you manage dangerous situations. It also occurs when you do something new or exciting. All people have acute stress at one time or another.”
- RADIO: The Business of Philosophy & Mental HealthJamie Ryder, Owner at Stoic Atheneum, is a mental health copywriter interested in the crossovers between mental health and philosophy. On The Business of Philosophy & Mental Health Jamie outlines his personal discovery of philosophy, how it has helped with his own mental health journey and how philosophy and psychology work together to teach us about the human experience. Jamie also explains what Stoicism is, and how teachings from the ancient Stoic philosophers can help us live in the present, let go of what we can’t control and ultimately lead less anxious lives.
- SUPPORT: Why focus on Mental Health Awareness Week?Mental Health Awareness Week should address and involve everyone. We have all sorts of ‘weeks’ now suggesting we should think about some particular subject, some of which only involve a relatively small number of people and therefore can pass us by. Mental Health Awareness Week needs everyone to be involved – even if someone just knows that mental health is being considered for this week. It is far too important, and affects absolutely everybody, to be ignored as just another fad. How, then, can we raise the profile publicly so that everybody can see their ‘role’ in mental health? Well, I guess we start with that last statement suggesting that everybody has a role in mental health – whatever does that mean and is it true? The obvious ‘roles’ are that of the professional, the volunteer and users of the mental health services – these are clearly people involved in mental health.
