Here is an extract that arrived in my inbox this morning as part of my employers support of the above. “One in four people will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives and nearly two-thirds of people with a known mental disorder will never seek help from a health professional. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. Often, the biggest challenge is recognising that you or someone you know is experiencing poor mental health and needs to access the right support as soon as possible. Key signs and symptoms can include low moods, low energy levels, lack of interest in things, poor concentration, eating too much or too little and sleep disruption. If you believe someone is at risk, ask them how they are feeling and listen to them. Being able to talk things through can be therapeutic in itself.” Looks like neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, MS, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy all now benefit from talking therapies etc. and are now akin to mental health conditions. Having two of these myself I thought this was lovely that all my work colleagues have now been given this additional layer of misinformation to help with a wider understanding. It appears to originate from the comms packs sent out by this charity. https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/publications/new-way-forward Hopefully this is just a mistake and nothing more sisnister? It might be worth keeping an eye out for similar conflation during this week?
