Mental Health – bored of hearing the same excuses?
Is it Time to Change and become a Champion, a Mentor for others? Positive Mental Health is so important.
How about volunteering in your community? Running your own events? Help me run an event? Just Listening to You is about supporting individuals with Mental ill health.
You can do this and more, more to the point, you can be a Champion in your everyday life.
What does it take?
Balls and Commitment! Dare to be different! Dare to challenge the status quo on mental health attitude.
It can be something as simple as talking about Positive Mental Health, telling people it’s time to change their poor old attitudes towards mental health.
Don’t listen to their poor excuses anymore. Don’t put up with them when they laugh at inappropriate jokes about people with mental health issues. Walk away, send a clear message.
Mental Health Inappropriate Laughs
Challenge a friend’s views about mental health. Teach them what it is to be a mental health champion, communicate with others, show them it is okay to have depression, anxiety, ocd etc.
Mental Health support group encourages others to challenge the status quo
& break down the stigma
It’s part of life.
Did you know that 1 in 4 people will experience depression at some point in their life? How many friends have you got? Do the math!
Have you considered that maybe the person laughing the loudest is the one with depression. It is easier for them to blend in to the background and pretend everything is fine.
I run a group called Just Listening to You in Wickford, Essex and Leigh on Sea, Essex.
These meet ups are absolutely essential, they need to be in existence, really they need to be made available to you every day.
Imagine that, imagine being able to walk in to a centre and talk to a human being, to someone who gets it, to someone who understands your plight, someone that can empathise with you.
Well this is what Just Listening to You is about.
Yes we are small, we provide a service to our members by listening to their daily struggles with the demons in their head.
Mental Health – heads full of demons &
We walk your journey with you, it’s hard walking around with a heavy black coat on, it’s hard to see through the fog.
We are there for you at any time you choose to talk to us.
What do we do? We LISTEN. We really listen, we hear the words that are not being said; quite often they are the most important ones.
We understand, We get it, We empathise not sympathise, We provide support in many different ways.
Just Listening to You is here for you.
Love Me. x
