Growing through what you are going through…

Recovery is about being able to create and live a meaningful and contributing life in a community of choice with or without the presence of mental health issues. People living with mental health disorders can and do get better or find their symptoms can be well managed.

Having a sense of hope is important for all of us. Often people experiencing emotional distress my find it difficult to believe that things can get better.

Instilling hope for a brighter future and better times ahead is one of the most critical things someone can do to support recovery. Opportunities for making choices and maintaining a sense of control over everyday life, building on personal strengths, and making new community connections, and celebrating successes all facilitate recovery.

While recovery is mostly driven by the person with lived experience, families and carers are perfectly placed to support and influence the recovery of loved ones experiencing mental health disorders. Family and carers are most familiar with the person and are a valuable source of information about the person’s life and understand those things that are important to them beyond their mental health issues.

Getting the right help with good information, support, and assistance for both the person with lived experience and their family or carers can be positive for everyone. Growth can be achieved by gaining a new acceptance of the challenges brought about by mental health issues, developing a sense of meaning, and discovering of new strengths and talents can make it life enhancing for everyone.

At The Toowoomba Clinic we have outpatient groups where you will learn how to cope with anxiety, stress and even depression as a result of COVID-19.
