World Mental Health Day

Well, that is another hope gone. My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hope.

I’ve used this statement before as a lamentation but it no longer applies to me because there is always hope. There is always help.

We are more fortunate during this era that there is so much resources available when it comes to mental health. Now, we are open about it due to media-hype-awareness and medical professions are better trained.

Below is a two-page document that I can refer to when something troubles me. I am sharing this information hoping that it might benefit others taken from Feeling Good.

Steven Taylor of UBC Department of Psychiatry said “Psychology plays a central role in pandemics, influencing the spreading and containment of diseases, and shaping pandemic-related distress and socially disruptive, divisive and potentially harmful phenomena such as panic buying, racism and protests against pandemic mitigation restrictions.”

He wrote the Psychology of Pandemic in 2018 Lessons Learned For The Future.

Be well and remain well.

    • Cognitively speaking, I’m feeling good. Keep safe and healthy, Lois. Sometimes, I read the news about Florida’s pandemic status and send good thoughts to bloggers living there.

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
