This week on Mindful Living Radio, I’m joined by Dr. Marcia Johnson, author of The Mindful Revolution, and Dr. John Keltner, author of The Seven Principles of Mindfulness. Dr. Keltner shared some statistics about mental health, and Dr. Johnson shared the experiences with being a volunteer for mental health organizations. Both Dr. Johnson and Dr.
Keltner showed some great advice for people who are going through a tough time and needing a little support. It’s really good to know that people who are seeking help are not alone and that there are many people out there who are willing to offer help and care. However, both said that the biggest hurdle of the volunteer experience is that the volunteers usually need to be able to “get their stories straight” or they are “hiding something.
I would say the biggest hurdle to people entering the volunteer world is trying to get the stories straight. The most important thing you can do to get this straight is to actually listen to people who are experiencing similar emotions. In other words, stop the victim/shame spiral.
I’m not saying that you shouldn’t do anything to help people, but in general, you should be very cautious with who you ask to volunteer. It can be a great way to meet new people, but it’s also a good way to get into the victimshame spiral. Asking someone to volunteer your time is a great way to be a victim yourself.
The victimshame spiral is the worst because it makes you feel like a victim. The victimshame spiral just gets worse and worse as you try to stay out of it. But here’s a good thing to do: if you don’t want to be a victim, you should at least try to avoid being a victim. If you decide to do something, then you should never volunteer to do something that makes you feel like you really can’t do it.
So, we ask all of our blog readers to help us write a little article about mental health volunteering. The best way to avoid this is to find a mental health organization that you really enjoy and ask that organization to let you volunteer. Then volunteer and never volunteer again. That way you can avoid feeling like a victim at all times.
Mental health volunteering may not be for everyone but it can be a wonderful way to help people deal with the challenges they face while volunteering. When you do it for a community or cause you’re really helping a person, you’re not going to feel like you’re doing it to gain something or to be a part of some scheme. It’s a way you can help these folks in real life (i.e.
The folks at MentalHealthVolunteer.org are working with an organization called The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project is a nonprofit serving people with mental health challenges. Its part of the national effort to reduce the stigma surrounding people with mental health challenges. They have numerous online resources where you can seek out information about suicide prevention and ways to get help. You can also find an interactive map of the locations of volunteer sites in your area.
This is one of the many ways to help people with mental health challenges and/or depression. The Trevor Project is one of the few that have programs focused specifically on helping people with suicide prevention. So if you know someone with depression or someone who is struggling with mental health challenges, help them find ways to get the help they need.
One of the main reasons why we have a mental health volunteer program is to help people with depression to not feel so alone. Depression is just as common in people who aren’t as well-educated as it is in the well-educated. It can also be a huge obstacle for those who are dealing with mental health challenges.
