My favourite part of last month was starting college! For those who dont already know, I started a course this month, I am studying mental health in the community. And I am loving it. I find it so interesting, not least because I am a patient, I have a mental illness, so I am learning a whole lot of new stuff about all aspects of mental illness! From the history of psychiatry, to positive psychology, to learning about the different chapters in the DSM, I even have to do a presentation on one disorder, I am thinking I’ll do mine on complex ptsd, or did. I am not sure yet though. But that was my thought. I really love the course so far though. 3 weeks in and I am itching to learn more already. The course is for a year, and at the end of it I get a certificate in mental health in the community. I am so glad I decided to do this. As I work in friendly call, and work with a lot of clients who have mental health difficulties, not only will it help them, but I am also benefiting, and I am hopeful it will help me too. The positive psychology part of the course is really helping, we also did wrap training, which was amazing. I am now qualified to teach wrap if I chose to do that. Or I will be once I get my certificate.
