The Zeta Room, By Louise Moss

Louise Moss has written about her Adverse Childhood Experiences and how they led to problems in her adult life. She offers the account to organisations involved in mental health training to use to promote an understanding among the public of the issues involved: In order to cope with an over controlling mother and a rigid, inflexible father, I became two separate people – the inner one or the ‘real me’ and the outer one, the one that did what I was told. I would watch myself doing what people...

Distract your inner fears by directing your focus on helping others… By Jane McNeice

As someone who has experienced a lifetime of Anxiety, occasionally acute but always constant, and these days (mostly) manageable, I do still have times when the management has to step up a gear. It’s those times when I’m well and truly out of my comfort zone. As a Myers Briggs INFJ I’m mostly out of my comfort zone when I have to be more extrovert, and in a world mostly geared up for extroverts, this is quite often. One of those times is when I deliver training. When I train I step out of my...

When Mind Matters attended the recent Health & Wellbeing at Work Conference in Birmingham we met some really interesting people offering a variety of services to support businesses and individuals. One of the little gems we came across was a company called Work Positive who have created a product to help people to identify and recognise their strengths and to identify these in others. For those of us who have experienced poor mental health, or supported others experiencing mental health...

Suicide is Not a Dirty Word, By Vicki Foulds-Duncan

Suicide. There. I said it. Yet, despite the fact that more than 6000 people across the UK and ROI die by suicide every year, so many of us don’t. This morning, as I sat with a cup of tea reading the local news, I came across sadly familiar phrases in a news article: “fallen from a railway bridge”; “no suspicious circumstances”; “if you are affected by the issues in this story, call Samaritans on 116 123”. I initially felt incredibly sad for the gentleman who died, his family and friends, the...
