Frequently asked questions:

What is meant by mental health?

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

What is recovery from mental health struggles?

Recovery is a self-directed journey, a process of healing, growth and self-discovery that has its ups and downs while striving toward balance and enriched quality of life.
– Elly Litvak, 2003

We often get told recovery is a long, insurmountable process. In the hospital environment, we may be told to lower expectations because the prognosis is less than bright. Or perhaps you’ve been provided very little; given quick snippets of complicated information, filled with jargon which leaves you with more questions than those you started with? Recovery is possible for everyone with appropriate professional and family support. Clickhere &here to learn more.
