The mind outside the mind
The mind is a powerful thing. During the month of October, we focussed on mental health awareness. What determines if a person is mentally ill and what determines if the person is not? The definition of mental illness varies from person to person, however, if a person’s thinking process is off balance, you are more than likely going to find a mental illness. It is natural to occasionally experience suspicions, a loss of thought and the inability to say what is on your mind, as well as other symptoms such as anxiety and depression. However, if these symptoms are ongoing, and interfere with your ability to cope with daily life, it is important to seek help.
