10/10: World Mental Health Day 2018. "There is no Health, without Mental Health" - Meaghann Crawford and Alessio Mattioli for MC International Events & Training & IBPI - International Biocentric Psychoanalysis Institute ®, World Federation for Mental Health affiliate.
"There is a lot of stigma around mental health and illness. It is so important and completely misunderstood. I have had friends and family members suffer with anxiety or depression and for a long time I would have been like countless others saying things like "just get on with it, it will get easier" or "come on, get ready, we are going out" and then I would get frustrated when they didn't want to help themselves. For the last while I have suffered slightly with anxiety and depression without even fully realising it or the impact it was having on my everyday life. It takes over your whole mind set and the things you normally love to do become a chore, every little task that needs to be done multiplies in size until everything seems to much to cope with. I would say no matter how much you think you are coping with things if there is a slight chance that you are feeling anxious, depressed or just a bit low please seek help like I have done. It is not easy but it will be worth it. Biopsysis® and PAP© have helped me significantly in getting my everyday life back on route to where it should be. It has improved my work performance helping with concentration and confidence. It has let me slow down and enjoy the simple things in life and importantly it has helped improve my relationship with my horse and my attitude to competing. I'm not saying everything is perfect yet but it's a lot better than it was before seeking help from Melania." (M. C.)
