There is an increasing focus on mental health issues in today's society. It is no longer only associated with illnesses such as schizophrenia, dementia and bi-polar disorder. Instead, mental health disorders now broadly include emotional and behavioural conditions, narcissism, anxiety, stress and loneliness.
Human interaction is important. By nature, human beings are social creatures and the impacts of modern living have had a profound impact on the way people relate to themselves and each other. It has brought about an immense disconnect between our minds and our spiritual source. Ayurveda tells us that when “tamas” or darkness fills the mind, then the “doshas” are afflicted resulting in imbalance of the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual states. It becomes essential to bring balance back to the five energy layers of the body.
The mental health awareness workshop will take participants:
1. What constitutes Meantal Health
2. Signs and Symptoms of Mental Health Illnesses
3. Time tested techniques to prevent, manage and cope with the causes in order to promote and maintain an ongoing state of balance and self-awareness.
The techniques will include yoga and breathing exercises to improve mental strength and offer lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of reoccurrence.
