What is your biggest question about mental health?
What change would you like to see in society’s approach to mental health problems?
Here at Crossroads Counselling we are interested in finding out what you think and in contributing towards the many debates in this area.
As our new website launches and we venture into new territory with our brand new blog page we want to know your views.
Crossroads has been serving the people of Tower Hamlets for over 23 years in offering much-needed, long-term, professional counselling for hundreds of people over this time and we have seen and learnt much along the way.
Mental health is undergoing a sea-change in how it is portrayed in the media and who is speaking out and sharing about these issues.
We plan to have a voice ourselves here at Crossroads and we want you to be part of that!
So a huge welcome to you. Come and join in!
Societally we need to work toward emotional health being in balance with physical health, part of our day to day. When our physical body is wounded or injured we are willing to seek support and treatment. Our emotional body deserves the same recognition. Organisations such as Crossroads who consistently promote, support and enhance emotional health are so valuable in advocating for greater awareness and acceptance of health being so much more than physical well-being. Your voice is important Crossroads keep up the good work.
Thanks Trish. Really appreciate your comments.
Crossroads is definitely focused on being part of the movement and action that addresses that imbalance and helps give the same recognition to the mind and emotions as to the body. Offering long-term counselling is one of the ways we place value on someone trying to do that in therapy, recognising that it can take time to build “mental muscles” in this area along the way. Developing those muscles and finding an ability to make choices that lead towards rest and balance is part of the healing process I think. Our blog post on the recent Guardian article about burnout looks at some of these issues and is also worth a read. Be interesting to know further thoughts from anyone on this and what has helped them. Do please post your comments.
