Mental Health is not just about people with diagnosable conditions in the same way that physical health is not just about people with cancer, diabetes or arthritis.
EVERYONE has mental health and EVERYONE needs good salf care practice.
Know your limitations, know your boundaries, know yourself and self care will come a lot easier.
Whether we are diagnosed with a mental illness or not, we all have a brain and mind that we all need to take care of. Mental health can have many guises and these are just a few:
- eating disorders
- low self esteem
- obsessive compulsive disorders
- panic attacks
- phobias and fears
- post natal depression
- post traumatic stress
