He knows that some young people — and their parents — often find it difficult to take the first step towards finding help. To both groups he provided some shocking statistcs on mental health and the likely hood of experiences at Ardingly College. He talked about his own experience, and some of the symptoms of a mental health problem so that both students and parents could recognise the signs themselves, in particular the difference between a low day and depression.
For parents, he then talked about how to talk to your own children, what to do if you are worried and coping strategies crying being important for everyone. Children need to make mistakes and learning failure is something that happens to everyone; is normal, healthy and a very valuable learning experience which makes us all stronger and more able to cope with what life hands to us. We all face storms, sometimes hurricanes, but we do have ways of coping and surviving.

Adolescence is a particularly emotional time and children benefit from knowing that anxiety can be both helpful and unhelpful. There is a difference between what is a low mood and what is depression.
The powerfulness of his talk not only made you open your eyes to yourself and any worries you might have, but also to others. It has made me much more aware of mental health issues and to look out for other people. His personal approach to the issue was particularly moving and made his talk one of the most engaging I have listened to. His talk was by far and away the best I have heard.

I notice that when this happens for me I tend to focus on the future.

I have been feeling a bit like this for a while now. I have so much change going on in my life, much of which is wonderful but change unsettles me and I go looking for certainty.
“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain.”
Often as a way of avoiding all the feeling that are going on underneath. In and amongst all the change in my life, this week, my internet banking was hacked through a computer virus and someone tried to steal my identity. It really threw me. I felt very unsafe, very vulnerable. But it made me stop and reflect on this quote.
I really notice that when things are not going my way, or even when they are going my way, but there is a lot going on, I tend to go into negative thinking, into a bit of catastrophising, into a bit of drama all said with great self-compassion! But this week I started to re-focus on some important Compassionate Self-Awareness practices.

I upped the ante on my gratitude practice. I took some time to go through my diary and commitments and say no to what I needed to say no to, moved what needed moving, all to create some space to really self-care, some space to feel like I can breathe.

I took more walks in nature and got to the ocean as often as I could as a way of grounding and centering myself. And in fact, no amount of thinking will work it all out anyway! I started sitting with my feelings and being kind and loving towards all that is arising within me. I gently and lovingly acknowledged my fears and the grief of letting go of my home, while also holding gentle but firm boundaries around my negative thoughts and my inner critic.
