Stuck a post-it-note to my forehead saying I'm 'Out of order'. I've officially had enough of this day. Spent 12 hours on my laptop today, working on various jobs and tasks I'm involved with right now. My brain is fried. How do you bloggers do it? Do you spend hours on the computer or Do you let your ideas brew in your head for awhile and them, BAM, it all spews out to your keyboard? Enquiring minds(including my fried one) would really like to know. ~Sweet dreams~ . . . . . . . . . #peersupport #soul2soulpeersupport #anxietywarrior #depression #overthinking #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalwellness #mentalhealthmatters #souljourney #empoweryourself #youareworthit #youarenotalone #youarestrong #youmatter #youarebrave #friedbrain #tired #goodnight #tomorrow #outoforder #mentalhealthadvocate #peersupport #blogger #anxietysupport #anxietyhelp #sweetdreams #tomorrowwillbebetter #mentalexhaustion #hope #empoweryourself

The Ripple Effect means...1) A situation in which one event produces effects which spread and produce further effects...2) With suicide, it is like a pebble thrown into a pond with waves of grief rippling outward. The reach of the pebble's ripple is much greater than the size of the pebble itself. Ultimately, in the way that a pond is changed because of the pebble, an entire community can be changed by a single suicide. It can have a devastating impact. This ripple can change everything that comes after it. If this is happening to someone in your life, let them know they are safe and supported. #greetingcards #cards #lonely #intrusivethoughts #selflove #loss #suicideawareness #youmatter #beheretomorrow #beyondblue #stayalivechallenge #semicolon #projectsemicolon #mentalillness #stopthestigma #breakthestigma #empathyforlife #therippleeffect #depressionawareness #selfworth #youbelong #depressing #selflove #onedayatatime #peersupport #suicideprevention #youareokay

I’ve been given an opportunity from my advocacy work to apply for the Australian Mental Health Leaders fellowship grant. It’s a program designed to meet the needs of emerging leaders with a passion and commitment to mental health. If awarded, I would have a residency for learning and networking workshops and a 12 month mentoring program as well as a collaborative group project conducted over six months. Even if I’m not successful to be given this opportunity is exciting and to see the ever evolving recognition is truly special.

Grand slam champion Dylan Alcott cruises to Bendigo Open victory! A brilliant performance in the final of the Bendigo Wheelchair Tennis Open confirmed Dylan Alcott’s on track to defend his Australian Open crown. The winner of the past four Australian Open titles and six grand slam crowns in all, Alcott cruised to a 6-2, 6-1 win over American David Wagner in Sunday’s quads final at the Bendigo Tennis Complex. Alcott didn’t drop a set on his way to claiming the inaugural title. . . . . https://zurl.co/xIwt #disabilitybodybuilding #disabilityfashion #disabilityactivism #disabilityactivist #disabilityinclusion #disabilitylifestyle #disabilityisamindthing #disabilityexpo #disabilitylife #disabilitylifestyleblog #disabilitytoowhite #disabilitysolution #disabilitysports #disabilitystories #disabilityemployment #disabilitycommunity #disabilityblogger #disabilityblog #peersupport #network #ideservedignity #support #chronicillness #care #compassion #love

Why Peer Support? That moment when you think, I really need to talk to someone but, don’t reach out because you don’t want to bother anyone, or it’s too late, or you haven’t talked in awhile. Peer Support is your answer right then and there. Make an appointment, you are not alone.

Kim once felt she had no hope when she was dealing with homelessness and mental health challenges. But now as a SOLVE speaker, she teams with us to reduce mental health stigma and offer hope to others.

When it comes to trauma, the response to it and the coping mechanisms developed to help process it are not always the most healthy, which is why so many people with addiction and substance abuse issues have also suffered trauma in the past.

Your baby’s tongue is crucial to effective milk removal. As such the range of movement of the tongue is particularly important. A restriction in movement caused by a Restrictive Lingual Frenulum (Tongue-Tie) can cause difficulties with both breast & bottle feeding.

I wrote a really really lovely caption about tonight’s runs but insta got shitty and hasn’t posted any of it 😒 SOOOOOOOO in a nutshell, tonight’s runs were flipping awesome. On the left in Waterloo, I (Jess) arrived feeling pretty sluggish and meh about life... and that brought on an anxiety feeling of “oh shit am I really feeling DOWN again, I don’t want this to be the start of another episode”... (spiralling mental catastrophe🙄) tbut 40mins later I was bounding away from RTR. The friendships formed at @runtalkrun are deep and beautiful. BRIGHTON RTR was equally beaut and hosted a welcoming all ability vibe space for some new to running badass Brighton folk.

What's on the menu this week!? 🍽 • Over the holidays, I took a beak from meal prep (because turkey for dinner for a week straight happened), and I missed posting about last week's prep. So this post will include two meal prep ideas I've been enjoyed. • Last week was taco salad! Super simple to get ready as it only required one pan. Ground turkey, black beans, mushrooms, sweet onions, and corn. I used taco seasoning, garlic powder, salt & pepper, cumin, and chili powder (season to taste). All of this topped a bed of ice burg lettuce. • For this week, I've made myself a lentil, spinach & sweet potato soup! I made it in my slow cooker. I used 2 cups of chicken broth (you can us vegetable) and 4 cups of water. Chopped up 1 carrot, 3 stalks of celery, half a sweet onion, and used half a can of diced tomatoes. Added 1 cup of green lentils, a large handful of spinach, and 1 diced sweet potatoes. • Hope these look tasty enough to want to try! I always love when people share with me pictures of the food they've made, especially when I'm told these posts inspire people to start some of their own prepping! I'm happy to share what makes me feel good, and happy. Heather 🌻 #mentalhealth #peersupport #wearelost #wheresheather #selfloveclub #mealprep #hamont

“Sharing power” is one tool that anyone can use in order to trauma sensitize their work or own practice. One of the ways that I share power in a #peersupport setting is to “offer choice”. Here’s example of that in action: sharing our group topics in advance.

This is Vanisha. You can follow her over on @mamaandmedoulaservices Vanisha was recently awarded a Haringey Community Impact Award 2018. She was Highly Commended for Improving the health and wellbeing of Haringey residents. Vanisha is a volunteer and peer supporter with the Breastfeeding Network. Her passion for breastfeeding and supporting breastfeeding parents is clear and apparent. Vanisha is a birth and postnatal doula, trained by @abueladoula and you can find her on their directory. A warm and loving woman, she's one to follow. #nyumbanikwamama #abueladoula #yourabuela #breastfeeding #peersupport #breastfeedingnetwork #haringey #haringeycommunityimpactawards

#hope is the message for the day. A quick read. Do you agree to #behopeful ?

Ughhh yes to this. A large part of these misconceptions are driven by false media representations (e.g *that* girl with anorexia who has one pea on her plate and refuses to eat it). Eating disorders are SO varied and many people with eating disorders eat in a way which may appear healthy around other people. If you don’t know the full picture, don’t make assumptions. If you are not a professional, don’t put your two-pence worth in. And if someone trusts you with information about their mental health, pleaseeee don’t question or invalidate them 🙃pic by @crazyheadcomics * * * * * * #mentalhealthawareness #eatingdisorders #addiction #anorexia #bulimia #bingeeating #recovery #notostigma #womenscharity #peersupport

The “How Hard Did Aging Hit You” Challenge! Take your 1st profile pic and your current profile pic and brace yourself. 2008 - 2019. Just over ten years. Different lives. 2008 - I was a tortured soul. In a relationship but yet felt so alone. I was depressed, suicidal and had not been medically diagnosed at that time. No hope for the future and if I wasn't drunk, I was hungover. Bitter and venomous and full of spite, I was a toxic person. 2019 - I am a community services and mental health peer support worker with a new life and appreciation for life. I am thankful every day for my blessings and friends and family. I have self respect for me and I am still in my relationship with my best friend ( who is my everything ). I'm a survivor and I have a passion to help others 1000% just not at a risk of neglecting myself. I see the world with positive eyes and I trust my gut and my intuition like they are my greatest friends. ✌👍💪👏💋💞 #transgenderwoman #toxic #suicidal #depression #mentalhealth #grateful🙏 #blessings🙏 #familyandfriends❤️ #trustyourintuition #trustyourgut #communityservices #peersupport #appreciationforlife #longtermrelationship #bestfriend #drunk #hungover #positivity

Does your relationship with food, weight or exercise cause you anxiety? Would you like to talk to others who have an understanding of what an eating disorder feels like?

Telling someone to “cheer up” or “get over it” when they are struggling with their mental health is extremely unhelpful. Experiencing Anxiety or Depression is not a choice, for a start why would someone ever choose that?! We can’t just snap our fingers and be free of it 💜 Having said all that, choosing positivity did have a really big impact on my recovery. I had done all the right things; reached out for professional help, accepted support from friends & family, undergone medication and therapy - and I had made a huge amount of progress 💜 However, I still found myself being held back by my (albeit understandable!) negative attitude; why has this happened to me? It’s not fair. I’ll never get better. And so on 💜 Slowly learning to turn these thoughts around, practicing gratitude and making a conscious choice to think more positivity allowed me to jump the final hurdle to real recovery 💜 It is NOT easy. You are battling your own brain and years of thinking a certain way. But it is possible, and worth it too 💜 What small step will you take to choose joy today? 💜 #positivity #positiveaffirmations #positivementalattitude #positivethinking #mentalhealthblogger #depressionhelp #anxietyhelp #peersupport #choosejoy

Clothing labels for people with disabilities offer much-needed comfort and dignity. When Trish Jackson goes shopping at any department store, she knows it will be a difficult experience to find items that suit her needs. More than 4 million Australians are estimated to have a disability, yet there are only a handful of boutique manufacturers across the country making inclusive and adaptive clothing for them. "Most shopping days when I'm desperate for clothes I end up in tears, absolute tears because you just get so frustrated nothing fits you," Ms Jackson said. She is a thalidomide survivor, one of 10,000 babies affected by the world-wide pharmaceutical tragedy half a century ago. She was born without arms and also endures other chronic health issues. She said up until 10 years ago her mum would make all her clothes, which would allow her to use her feet as hands and get dressed independently. "I've tried online shopping and to find dressmakers, but the minute you say you want something different they all seem to get scared and don't want to do it or they charge ridiculous prices that you can't afford," she said.

This design is to bring awareness to Project HEAL. Project HEAL works to fundraise and award grants for in-patient treatment for those with an eating disorder. On top of that they help beneficiaries stay in treatment for as long as they need even if their insurance coverage cuts out. Project HEAL also provides Communities of HEALing - 100% free peer support and mentorship to support eating disorder recovery. The co-founders of Project HEAL were featured in Forbes 30 under 30 Social Entrepreneurs list, how amazing is that!
