    Not being happy/excited when I should be

    This is my first post here (or indeed on any mental health forum), so please go gently! Not sure if I've posted this in the right forum, but not knowing what (if any) condition I have, this seemed to be the only place to put it. For some years (certainly 10+) I have had difficulty being...

    What does 'good mental health', mean to you?

    The World Health Organisation says: 'Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.'

    Starting Person Centered Counselling

    First session this morning 1 of 12 x 50 minute session with a male counsellor.
