Recovery Resources & Ideas.


This new page will include different ideas and resources for you to use in your personal recovery journey. It may also be useful for mental health workers to access resources to share with their clients.

I plan to add to it over time, and welcome your ideas for things to include.

 
 

Living with Difficult Emotions

NEW!


Difficult emotions like anger, fear, shame and sadness can cripple our lives. But finding new ways to understand and respond to these emotions can also free us from suffering and create new opportunities in our lives.

I created this 12 page booklet for people interested in understanding more about difficult emotions. It includes worksheets to explore your own experiences with difficult emotions. I hope you find it useful.

Coping Skills


Coping skills help us to survive difficult emotions, thoughts and experiences. They give us a break from our pain, which in turn gives us space to build our personal skills, strengths and resources.

ImageCoping skills won’t solve our underlying issues, but they are an important step along the path to recovery.

I’ve put together this information sheet about coping skills in the hope that it may be helpful to others. It’s based on what has helped me get through difficult times, and the wise advice I have learned from others.

Please feel free to share this flyer with anyone who may be interested. I am also interested in your feedback and ideas to improve it.

Think of it as an online group of peers who have similar struggles. The group is there any time to share your feelings and ideas about Christmas, and to read the thoughts of others.

The group is open to anyone and is called “Getting Through Christmas”. Follow this link to visit the group.
