Looking forward to checking out some of the events at Epsom mental health week (6th – 12th October 2014). It all kicks off today at 10.15 at St Barnabas church which is in Temple Road, Epsom, Surrey, KT19 8HA.
Go to www.epsommentalhealthweek.org.uk for details of what’s on. The panel discussion today “What it means to have good mental health” sounds interesting with respect to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as the end target of CBT therapy is of course to hit the virtuous circle of positive mental well-being and break out of the vicious circle caused by anxiety and depression.
I’ll also be interesting in hearing the “New Developments in Mental Health Care” presentation. CBT therapy and counselling are the big buzzwords in mental health at the moment and it will be interesting to hear what Fiona Edwards, Chief Executive of Surrey and Borders NHS Foundation Trust will be focusing on in her talk.
