The power of words | Felipe Contreras

Quite often in a discussion I’ve heard the phrase “semantics”, as if the meaning of words didn’t really matter in a discussion. Words are the building blocks of complex ideas, and if we don’t have …

I would like to get everyone who works in mental health and businesses to work together in the local community. Part 3

This is the third part, which I would like to start by talking about resources, workbooks, and worksheets.

I will be providing links to websites that provide worksheets and workbooks, as well as direct links to the relevant worksheets that are utilized in groups. As well as providing worksheets and books from my own sessions in groups and therapy, where the therapists have agreed I can share their information.

The Emotional Wellbeing Group I have been attending, the therapists involved have given me permission to share these, and to be able to reword their worksheets as well. I have made some worksheets for myself, as I felt these would help me and made it easier for me to do the homework on some weeks. I think it would be nice for anyone to change the worksheets for their own needs in any way they like, and share them on their blogs, or have them displayed on The Hub for other people to use.

At the same time, I have some email addresses of therapists who have allowed me to contact them for help with The Mental Health Resource Hub, because they think it is a thoroughly beneficial idea for me to do for other people too. My support worker calls me a contractor, she feels this is a genuinely helpful ambition, and suggested that I should share my mental health story for people, as well as in NHS Conferences.

This means that I can take this to the NHS Trusts themselves and show them how this is going to work, and how it will help educate the public, people with mental health problems, and most of all help with the stigma of mental health.

The conferences will be a good place to network with professionals, and get more psychologists and psychiatrists to come onto the project, as well as come onto livestreams to talk about what they do, and answer questions like Katie Morton.

An opportunity for local council members, MPs, Job Centre staff to discuss relevant information on via livestream could be good too; I hope to do the same with people in those sectors in other countries.

Just as I would at the community hub, people would also be able to share their experiences, and provide information about how they were able to get certain things to make life a bit easier and more manageable.

I will be trying to do an undergraduate in Psychology with the Open University, and do some of their free courses as well in certain sections of psychology and health. This way I can be more help to people, but also it might help me with speaking to psychologists and other mental health professionals.

The plan is to contact other charities, psychology experts, and people whom I have thought to ask for information about start The Hub, YouTube, and selling handmade gifts online.

The I hope will happen is that this will help with more networking and providing me with some help, as well as being some kind of support system that I can contact when I need to.

Another thing that I am looking into is the NEA known as the (New Enterprise Allowance), which I am unsure, will be around since Brexit and leaving the EU. As well as the Access to Work grant, as I may need to in getting out, and need that extra support with motivation on bad days, and other things. Again I am unsure whether this will be around by the time I want to start The Hub, nor am I sure that they will award me with these, since I am on ESA WRAG and doing this as a business would seem viable to the government and DWP, another issue is that I am afraid of asking.

Then there is the fact I will probably be working from my own bedroom mostly, and how do I actually know that this is going to make enough money to keep it running. That worries the life out of me, I mean; I do not wish to make thousands, which was never the intention I wanted. I just want to be able to cover things, such as materials for cards and gifts, the ink for the printer, and being able to the rent and bills when I am able to get a place for The Hub and the activities I want to provide.

There is also the charity route, which I am going to try to get the courage to go to my local Voluntary Action Group, and have a talk to one of the advisors there. Where there are grants and funds, but there is also the selling stuff part that has me confused.

Is there a way to do my project without the consequences jeopardizing the help I want give for people, and keeps The Mental Health Resource Hub running?

I know there are some projects in my area that are community based, and sell to local businesses their products.

Sorry for the long and arduous rumblings, I know these posts probably seem very boring to you by now.

Thank you for reading, if you would like to donate (no pressure at all): http://goget.fund/1VwETTO

Gad Saad on Hysteria and “Collective Munchausen” around Donald Trump, Speaking Out as an Academic, and Evolutionary Psychology 101 – Areo Magazine

| by Malhar Mali | “As somebody who escaped Lebanon and actually hid under desks to avoid death squads, I don’t take well to these idiots from Wellesley College who say, ‘I’…

I’ve been thinking this for a while, the whole Munchausen syndrome for social justice warriors and feminists, since they seem to lie a lot about having conditions to get to the top of the Oppression Olympics.

This is very interesting a worth reading Gad Saad is a very intelligent guy, and Munchausen’s is a really interesting subject to read about.

Gaming is not as addictive • The Register

The first large-scale research attempting to measure the extent of internet gaming addiction has found … not very much. An Oxford University study suggests that playing online games is not as addictive as gambling.

I know this is an old story, but I found it interesting. And since feminists and social justice warriors are always complaining about computer games, I thought I would add it to my blog.

Plus it under mental health, so that’s another reason why I thought I would add it too.

Getting outraged on others’ behalf often isn’t about altruism but soothing personal guilt and asserting one’s status as a good person.

10 Things People Don’t Realize You’re Doing Because You’re Repressing Your Feelings

We live in a world that teaches us to be strong at all costs. The reality for many is that to be able to ‘stay strong’, means to repress their feelings.

This Is Why The Girl That’s Always Smiling Feels Miserable Inside

The girls with the widest smiles have the deepest cracks in their hearts.

This article speaks to me, because I am always being strong and caring for others before myself. Though I think in my case it is a family trait, my mum looked after me, my nan, and my dad who who had 2 nervous breakdowns. My nan looked after my cousin, whose mum (my mum’s sister) was a bitch, still is really.

Meanwhile I just protect everyone close to me, from my parents, to my friends. I know this makes my mental health worse, but I would rather everyone else was okay.

I’ve been like it my whole life, I don’t know whether that could ever change for me, I like caring for people, because my problems are not really that important. Though my emotional Wellbeing Group is meant to be trying to get me in touch with my feelings. Showing you each module we do in the 12 weeks of the group, and show you worksheets and information.

I hope to do it, so I can help others and give them more information and examples to treatments.

Let’s see how that goes.

Maybe I’ll write a blog post about when I feel a lot better, and my computer doesn’t want to die with each word I type.

It’ll probably be on the Mental Health Resource Hub and here too.
