Educate people on mental health issues

Many people go through mental issues unknowingly or undiagnosed. This is because many do not understand the behaviour or symptoms that symbolise mental health problems. As such, it is necessary to educate people on how mentally healthy people behave in different circumstances. Education could include tips on how to deal with mental illness, how to recognise mental illness and what to do if a close friend or relative is suffering from mental illness. This can be provided to residents in different areas through meetings.

Sharing experiences and getting help

In most cases, people never share their experiences on mental illness due to the associated stigma. However, sharing experiences not only increases awareness but it also helps people recognise that they are not the only people undergoing different issues in life. In essence, it helps minimise the stigma around mental health and helps people gain freedom to ask for help when they feel burdened. The feeling that you may be the only one going through something can worsen the situation. Besides, sharing experiences can help others identify strategies they could use to get better as well as to assist their family members or friends in getting better. During meetings, people can share experiences, meet other people with mental issues and help each other get better.

Guidance and counselling

While treatment, support from family and friends can assist people with different mental issues to get better, there are other interventions that can also make life bearable. These include guidance and counselling by professional counsellors. Guidance and counselling can be conducted for individuals or groups to accommodate people who are at different stages in their recovery journey. The counselling sessions can be organized before or after the meetings such that those who find them beneficial can attend. While it is not compulsory, talking to someone who understands what you may be going through is a good way to relieve the pressure as well as get to find out what can be done to help you get better.

Meetings also assist people to understand where they can get different mental health services and treatment. During meetings, different services providers could speak on what they do and where they are located to make it easier for those who would like to seek medical help.
