Home The facts What is mental health? What is mental health? It’s an expression we use every day, so it might surprise you that the term ‘mental health’ is frequently misunderstood. ‘Mental health’ is often used as a substitute for mental health conditions – such as  depression ,  anxiety  conditions, schizophrenia, and others. According to the  World Health Organization , however, mental health is “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” So rather than being about ‘what’s the problem?’ it’s really about ‘what’s going well?' ''Mental health is about wellness rather than illness'' To make things a bit clearer, some experts have tried coming up with different terms to explain the difference between ‘mental health’ and ‘mental heal

PTSD - can happen to anyone

PTSD What does that mean ? We all are fighting a battle no one can see! Be kind PUBLIC This section is for Veterans, General Public, Family, & Friends What Is PTSD? Handout Understanding PTSD and PTSD Treatment  (PDF) PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault. It's normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of event. At first, it may be hard to do normal daily activities, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about. But most people start to feel better after a few weeks or months.  If it's been longer than a few months and you're still having symptoms, you may have PTSD. For some people, PTSD symptoms may start later on, or they may come and go over time. What factors affect who develops PTSD? PTS

Always reporting changes and what's happening. Doctors are awesome, they are the ones we trust our life too so getting a good one that you can share and feel like they are listening is the key here. I sometimes think wow that dam test! Yep well it's worth it for peace of mind. My friends are now loosing parents to this so again what so we share with our friends. Everything, a great friend is an asset. Remember we were all excited sharing engagements, weddings, births and so many happy and exciting times. Ok so what now. It's sad now divorces, funerals and sickness. That's ok that is the circle of life. It's so weird but now in my early 50's I would be really excited for a wedding or a birth. No more funerals please. This weekend I have a friends hubbies 50th and my very good frien
