To date one of the best courses I signed up for. So happy I embarked on the MiCBT journey with the MiCBT Institute:

My Graduate Diploma in Mindfulness integrated Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Their training is second to none, and the skills I picked up I still use in my practice today.

Could not be prouder.

Kyara conducting her LIVIN presentation in front of about 650 year 11s and 12s at Chancellor State College

I would have totally soiled my pants at age 24....

And her SHE is, nailing it.

When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.

When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.

Long and short define each other.

High and low depend on each other.

Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.

Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.

She has but doesn't possess,
acts but doesn't expect.

When her work is done, she forgets it.

That is why it lasts forever.

[Tao Te Ching]

Mental Health vs Mental Illness

A discussion that comes up with so many people. Mental health and mental illness are related, but they're not the same thing.

Mental illness is a clinically significant disruption of a person's thinking, feeling and functioning. It involves distress or suffering that continues for an extended period and impairs the person's functioning in life.

Mental health is (according to the WHO) a state of mental well-being that enables people to cope with the stresses of life, realise their abilities, learn well and work well, and contribute to their community.

A person with a -untreated- mental illness will definitely have deterioration in their mental health. Yet: a person with bad mental health does not necessarily have a mental illness, though. And: a person with a well-managed mental illness can have excellent mental health!

We can ALL take steps to improve our mental health, whether we are mentally ill or not. Physical health (sleep, diet, exercise, and perhaps medication), mental and emotional fitness (mindfulness, emotion regulation, gratitude, reframing) and asking for help (friends, family, professionals) can all contribute to increased mental health and well-being.

Reach out, for both mental illness and ill mental health. Improvements can be made for each and everyone of us, I am absolutely convinced.
