Having Good Support System in Difficult Times
Dealing with Loneliness, Mental illness and Family Mediation
Many people in the UK feel that they have no one to confide in about mental health, finances and relationships. This could be due to an array of reasons, including lack of time and an appropriate place to carry out such conversations. Everyone has their part to play if this trend is to be broken. As much as people tend to think that they need the perfect setting in order to open up to someone about such things, this is not the case. You should never wait for the best time or perfect place. Starting such a conversation might be hard, but that is simply what you should do. Regardless of where you are, feel free to talk to someone. If you still find that there are no chances to start the conversation, take advantage of the ‘Time to Talk Day’ that is usually on February 1st to unburden your heart.
This day is set to remind people that conversations are powerful, and that the simple steps everyone makes contribute to a better and mentally stable society. After it was discovered that more than 200,000 elderly people had not had any chance to talk to anyone in more than 30 days, the government decided to introduce a policy that included having a loneliness minister. Many people in the UK claimed to feel lonely always, and that is what the government is trying to combat.
When a relationship comes to an end and a couple files for a divorce, the parties that suffer the most are the kids. Many people fail to understand the pain and confusion children go through when this happens. They could even end up with mental problems. It is hard for any parent to tell their children that they have to be living with only one parent. Such children should be treated with a lot of love and caution; just like you would a person dealing with loneliness and mental illness. Find a gentle way to talk to such children.
