Your Role in Your Own Mental Health

We wish there were magical instant solutions, sometimes we wish we knew what they are.

But unfortunately they do not exist.

Positive and sustainable mental health always takes:

  • action
  • focus
  • practice,  and 
  • new skills or insights.


Open and willing to share
You bring your willingness to tell your story and share your insights. How you got to where you are now, is important – however your learnings, insights and experiences gained as you move towards your intended future goal is even more critical.

You are the key to your mental health and wellness.
Therapy helps you choose the right key to achieve your goals. You are responsible for --what you choose to hear, - how you decide to think, - how you intent to behave and, - how you make the hundreds of decisions needed to move forward.

Being willing to do what it takes
Or another way of saying it is – will you do what it takes to achieve what you want. Will you commit to growing your own skills and abilities to maintain the healthy life you want. The question for yourself is … Are you committed to doing the work for yourself and your own benefit?

When we always do what we have always done,  
we keep on getting what we have always got.

What is Robust Mental Health?

Barbara shares a firm belief that robust means being healthy, vigorous, aware of self and of others.

Robust mental health is present when we have a strong, healthy, and even vigorous,  relationship with ourselves and the world we live in. 

Maintaining our mental and emotional health is a lifelong process. It is by nature proactive and uses different strategies, skills, tactics to strengthen our mental, emotional and psychological resources…  which we use to interact with our world.

It also means being courageous enough to consider another’s view of ourselves, and brave enough to share our own views. It means to be powerful and strong within ourselves – respecting our values, challenging our beliefs, and honouring our own needs.

The World Health Organisation states mental health as a “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”

What do you think robust mental health involves?

Our life experiences have a way of testing our mental health, or even derailing it at times.

How can we help you regain or develop robust mental health in your life right now?

What do you need to regain your mental health and wellness?
