Mental health recovery

This weekend I’ve been thinking a lot about this. I searched all my knowledge bases. I then broke this down to the simplest aggregate of ideas. At the outset, none of this is advice for any known or unknown individual. The bio-psychosocial model of care has been around for the last 30 years at least. But what does it mean in practical terms? That’s what I wanted to tackle. Well, eventually I returned to the basics. The following mindmap and link can be applied to any mental disorder/illness (clicking on the image of the mind-map brings up a larger view). This is more about self-management using the bio-psychosocial model. Now, did I say this was a treatment or cure for mental disorder/illness? I did FREAKING not!

If anyone reading this has a wish or idea that I’m gonna explain it to them and tell them how to do it –  they’re lucky they’re not within swinging distance of my elbow.

When the Earth has an itch?

I’ve been observing the Earth for some time – I’d say for approximately 40 years or so. Before that I was pretty much ‘asleep’ – yuh know, busy and wrapped up with so much other stuff. It has occurred to me, especially in the last 20 years, how we are destroying our planet. Did I ... Read more
