I’ve posted a couple of posts about self-help, and just want to check that it’s okay. I do not want to appear to be preaching, sermonizing or sounding condescending.
I think it’s important to empower people as much as possible as otherwise it’s an almost impossible struggle to beat depression. There are loads of books on self-help, but that’s quite difficult to embrace when you’re feeling depressed. Bite-sized it’s easier to take on. If you visit a GP and ask for a referral, that’ll take ages, and then there will be a long wait until you see a therapist who in any case will only give you ten sessions of therapy, a lot of which is used discussing your situation.
Some of the topics I have in mind posting are:-
Anger, sadness – depression
NHS v Private healthcare
Not necessarily in that order.
I’m not a healthcare professional. I gained my knowledge over a number of years as a patient in private and NHS mental health care. A lot of what I learnt is not very useful but occasionally there is a useful nugget of information, which I can distil and post here. From there people can then use Google to explore the topic further if they wish.
So, my question is – would this be helpful to you?
