by Neseret on October 23, 2012

“Thanks for the deeply informative and inspiring Telesummit.”

“Thank you so much for an information-packed inspiring Series. The calls have been excellent. I feel blessed to have been on the calls.”

“Thank you for this beneficial was brilliant. It was so nice at the end of the day, to sit quietly & listen to a recovery presentation in the comfort of my own home:) I have been working on my recovery for the last 22 years. I am an Adult Child of an Alcoholic & a parent of a dually diagnosed adult child, who is now 42 yrs old & still active. It was so nice to be reminded of where I have been & to celebrate how far I have come in my recovery as I listened to you & your presenters. I learned some new info & techniques from this series. You all inspired me to keep moving forward on my journey of self discovery, even though others in my life do not choose recovery. It was a great refresher course for me!!! And it was just what I needed!”

“So many thanks and KUDOS for an excellent series.”

As I reflect on the many blessings I have in my life I’m reminded of how incredible it is to be living in a free country. As well what an amazing time to be alive on planet earth. We have so many opportunities for learning, and growth individually as well as humanity as a whole.

I feel deeply grateful today for the opportunity I’ve had to put together the Mental Health Telesummit. I too believe “there now exists an historic opportunity to make a difference.” Putting together the mental health telesummit was a great learning experience. I thoroughly enjoyed connecting with each of the speakers.

The mental health telesummit consisted of a series of 12 interviews with mental health professionals, experts and advocates.

At the mental health telesummit speakers shared practical information, tools, and strategies to help people who are struggling with mental ill health and addiction. Topics covered ranged from how to cope and manage living with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, eating disorder and addiction issues.

Each of the speakers were passionate about empowering individuals to overcome their challenges in life and learn to thrive. The beautiful thing about this group of mental health professionals and experts was the fact each of them had their own unique stories of recovery and healing.

I believe as mental health professionals we are the tools we use to support others in their journey of healing.

It is critical to find our own path to healing in order to be effective in supporting others in their journey of healing. Ultimately as the saying goes “the therapist is the therapy”.

One of my biggest intention for the mental health telesummit was to discuss holistic approach in the treatment of mental ill health and addiction. Having worked in the mental health system I know the traditional mode of treatment – medication and therapy alone – are not effective as lasting solutions.

We need to treat people as a whole – mind-body-spirit – in if we are to emp0wer them to move forward in their life, learn to thrive, and create a life they’re excited to live.

If you’re someone who is currently on medication and receiving therapy and still feel like you’re “stuck”  know you’re not alone. Also know that there are ways for you to start feeling better and there is a lot of support.

The mental health telesummit will be a great place to start in your journey of healing. Each of our speakers will share with you their own personal story of recovery/healing. They will also share with you tools, tips, and resources to help you start feeling better and moving forward in your own journey of recovery and healing.
