We look at the bigger picture when it comes to mental health.
Our access to food, shelter, and community support influences our mental health and wellbeing, but achieving psychological wellness becomes challenging when we're exposed to the realities of climate change, disease, and pressure on food and water supplies - our basic survival needs.
The Counselling Hub recognises that feeling safe and positive are important aspects of our mental health, which is why we have situated ourselves within the Wellbeing Economy - an ecosystem addressing the needs of human life holistically in a way that is not damaging to our planet or its people.
Your wellbeing adds to the collective wellbeing
Your contribution always comes back to you!
When a person attends to their wellbeing, it benefits their community and the systems surrounding them.
Acts that contribute to a Wellbeing Economy that also benefit you:
Listening to a friend - when we listen to others, we help our social environment and help ourselves feel less isolated. Feeling more useful is an important aspect of mental health.
Binning & recycling - keeping our planet healthy, we relieve ecological and climate anxiety and see ourselves as actors in this world, not helpless bystanders to disaster.
Trading & borrowing - instead of buying, we have less pressure on our wallets and reduce needless consumption. Financial and material instability is often a source of stress.
