Sharing unlocks a mind supporting skill designed to help you succeed in your chosen task.
The Manifesto of a Prior Patient.
Consider Jen. As a fourth year university student, she is juggling several competing demands that are weighing on her mental health. Earlier this year, Jen participated in a community mental health program which taught her valuable skills to manage her emotional health.
When she graduated from the program, Jen received a booklet with cognitive behavioural therapy exercises she could use to prevent crisis. It’s sitting in a drawer at home, as dusty as the booklet with physiotherapy exercises she was recommended for her sprained ankle last summer. Jen is no longer receiving support to keep her mental health in check and she can feel herself falling back into familiar traps.
Like Jen, the only option for many of us is to go to our doctor and get another referral, but we’ve been through the mental health system before. We understand that because we might not be in crisis, it could be a long wait before we can re-access care. Furthermore, with limited time and limited funds, many young people are unsure if they can pay for therapy or fit it into an already busy schedule.
Jen isn’t one person, she’s an example shared by many. What’s needed are options.
