In all our programmes, we start by considering the subject of mental health from a more general perspective, before delving into exactly what it means. By exploring our brain, the known feel-good chemicals (neurotransmitters) and our stressors – both positive and negative – we are able to baseline mental health management in both ourselves and others.
As our programmes progress, we move onto the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of mental health. This starts with the understanding that both our brain and nervous system are fundamental to managing good mental health. At Wellbeing Mental Health, we are able to do this because our Clinical Psychologists are the ‘scientist-practitioners’ in the field of mental health. There are very few professional service firms that have our combined level of expertise, qualifications, knowledge, and skills. We are therefore delighted to be able to offer this level of service to our clients, with the wider long-term vision of improving mental health in society at large.
Physical Health v Mental Health
From a very early age, we learn how to care for our physical health and hygiene. However, no one teaches us how to care for our mental health and hygiene. We don’t get taught how to manage our thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Just like our physical health, our mental health can be enhanced, protected and restored with a range of clinically proven, proactive practices that can easily be integrated into our daily lives.
Enhancing, Protecting & Supporting Mental Health
Founded in neuroscience, our learning programmes promote a wide array of evidence-based methods, activities and techniques to facilitate mental health self-monitoring and self-care.
There is still much stigma surrounding mental health problems. However, it needn’t be difficult to talk about thoughts and feelings. We teach proven methods for recognising the very early warning signs of emotional decline in others and early intervention methodologies. We also provide the skills and practice for compassionate listening and providing support to normalise conversations about mental health and wellbeing.
