Last Tuesday 8 November I attended the PAVO AGM and Conference at Cefn Lea Conference Centre near Newtown along with colleagues and respresentatives from voluntary sector groups, the statutory sector, and numerous other individuals. Working with the Liberian government , the Center has helped to create a corps of over 185 locally trained and credentialed mental health clinicians now serving all 15 counties in the country. However, not much is said about children with mental illnesses even though there are many that will develop one, even as early as age three.
Similarly, the confirmation of one’s own value, in dialogue with other people, a vital contribution to the experience of health. An important definition of health that many scientists are describing is that man has the ability to realize or achieve vital goals.
Programs are being implemented today that are significantly decreasing the likelihood that a individuals suffering from mental illness or addiction disorder will be detained in the jail system. To be truly mentally well, Canadians also need psychotherapy, counselling and community-based mental health services and programs; we need acknowledgement and respect; and we need adequate housing.
It may be that you require specialist skills in order to help you cope with your mental illness and as one person couldn’t conceivably be an expert in every single area, you could be referred to someone in the community mental health team. The unconscious mind that produces our dreams gives us clear, real, and objective information about our mental health.
On many occasions, an individual with a mental disorder may be the best person for a job. Mental Health Partners does not deny services based on a person’s race, color, gender, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation or national origin. We don’t know how exactly the human brain works, and we are unable to eliminate the absurdity that characterize the behavior of those who suffer from mental disorders.
