Recently, I was asked to present what Creating Wellbeing is, why it was born and what it can become. Easy! But I only had 1 minute.
When you have a minute, have a read of this to find out more:
I dreamt of Creating Wellbeing 2 years ago.
Apparently, 1 in 4 will experience a mental health problem over the course of a year. It’s a hot topic with many services catering for the increasing need. That is, if your need meets a certain criteria.
But if you have a bit of a problem, there isn’t a lot for you.
You might know someone with a bit of OCD or a bit of anxiety ? Holding down a job, running a household. Brave enough to go their GP only to be told ‘You’re not that bad; come back if it gets worse’.
I’ve met lots ofpeople with a bit of a problem: At my meditation, sewing group, Reiki course. All there for the same reasons: Using crafts and holistic therapies to stop the ‘bit of a …’ from becoming ‘a lot of a …’.
I started Creating Wellbeing to provide a space for people to explore these tools with others, and a psychologist (when appropriate).
So you can tell your sister who’s stressed, partner who’s panicky or dad who’s down ‘don’t wait until it gets worse’. Go to CreatingWellbeing.org or local CWB group to start your own path to well-being.
