Mental health and counselling have been taboo subjects for many years, but there has been a recent shift in thinking. The Australian public has become more aware of mental health topics. However, understanding mental health is more than just knowing that it exists. Here at Life Resolutions, our Principal Psychologist, Mary Magalotti and Director, Jodie Brenton want to help change the way people think about mental health.
New ways to think about mental health
- Mental health should be treated like any other factor of health
- Many Australians go to the GP regarding their physical health, it is just as important to check in regarding your mental health! General mental health check-ups can be useful to ensure mental wellbeing and provide the opportunity for early intervention.
- Understanding and taking note of your emotions
- Emotional education is an important step to understanding your mental health. Many people find it difficult to describe, name or recognise the emotions they feel. By educating yourself on emotions and how they affect you will help you gain insight into your mental wellbeing.
- No matter your age, mental health is important
- From early childhood to the later stages in life, mental health remains an important factor of wellbeing. Counselling can be provided and tailored to children, students, and adults to ensure good mental wellbeing.
Your mental health is an important part of your daily life. By thinking about mental health in these new ways, you can become proud to take care of your wellbeing. Mary Magalotti and Jodie Brenton created Life Resolutions to aid people all over Australia to take care of their mental health.
