Resilience


Mental Health Week starts Sunday the 5th October and runs until Saturday the 11th October.

This years sees the initiation of a three year campaign to build resilience, to help people develop strengths to enable them to cope better with negative events. The focus of this initial year is to appreciate the smaller things in life.

Appreciating the little things, that's such an important key. Staying in the now. Are resilient people more likely to think this way? I would think so. I'd like to be caught up on this literature.

I love these awareness programs. Eventhough every day should be an awareness day!

I didn't know it was mental health week. Darn! I couldn't see the slides. My old corky computer wouldn't let me.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
