This Sunday is World Mental Health Day and I will be giving a free talk on understanding mental health in COVID times and looking at coping strategies.
Join us at Marketplace by SOS on Sunday 10th October for the first in our Wellbeing Workshops, to raise awareness of World Mental Health Day and meet with resident counsellor Romi Grossberg.
To mark the event Romi will be sharing simple take-home tools we can all do for ourselves to keep our family, friends and community safe and emotionally healthy.
COVID has been really tough for many and has increased our levels of stress, uncertainty, depression and anxiety. The greater the number in the community who understand the impact of mental health and with the skills to relieve some of these emotions, the more we can support and help each other from things like ‘collective anxiety’ or ‘contagious anxiety’. So let’s come together, learn together and support together.
We’ll be providing complimentary tea and homemade cupcakes donated by the lovely Moran.
Only 20 spots available. So register early to save your seat.
Date: Sunday 10th October
Time: 10:30am – 12:30pm (includes morning tea break)
Location: Marketplace by SOS, behind the Buffalo Steakhouse (Chaweng Ring Road).
Cost: This event is free to attend, but a small donation on the day to Sisters on Samui would be appreciated.
“Listen to resident counsellor Romi speak about our mental health and emotional well being in these uncertain times and how we can still move forward.” – Sanctuary Thailand.
It is very normal to be feeling pressure, stress, worry, grief or confusion at the moment. Here I talk about how we can move forward. Despite the loss of freedoms: loss of jobs, financial stability, mental health stability, physical contact, loss of routine, how we can still find peace, calm and balance.
“A fascinating conversation with Freedom Cole, Dr Patty Hlava and Romi Grossberg on the crucial topic of Mental Health – integrated approaches to healing, how different cultures approach mental health, the use and misuse of medication, and how best to navigate these troubling times with a modicum of sanity.” The Big Turtle Podcast.
A shaky start to the video podcast interview across the UK, U.S. and Asia with a little freeze and a little pause but well worth the watch.
Making Mental Health a Priority During Uncertain Times – Podcast interview on The Big Turtle Podcast, June 2020.
Hosted by: Vikram Zutshi and Lea Horvatic.
Guests: Romi Grossberg, Patty Hlava, Ph.D., and Freedom Cole.
“This period of self-isolation has for many, been a real time of imposed self-reflection. For some it was a long overdue pause from life, for some it was just going deeper in to what you may already do. It is important to ‘know yourself’ – your patterns, beliefs, thoughts and habits, if you want to create change.
Stop, reflect and ask yourself questions. Am I happy? Am I doing what I want to be doing? Am I fulfilling my dreams? Am I living each day on purpose? Am I consciously living my life?
To self-reflect effectively we need to be hearing that background noise that we all have. We want to know what it is saying. Are you listening? Is it positive? Is it negative? Is it your own voice? Your parents? Siblings? Old teachers? Bullies from school? Friends or mentors? What are you filling your mind with? These questions are vital but can be scary if you have never asked them before.
You cannot change what you are not aware of.
Who are you when you strip away the voices of society, culture, family, friends and old nemesis?”
