THERE is a lot of talk in the community about mental health and the lack of services.
The My Plan Connect (MPC) team offer recovery coaching.
Have you heard of a psychosocial disability?
A mental health illness resulting in a disability, is referred to as a psychosocial disability. This indicates that your condition has a severe impact on your life and affects your ability to perform daily activities.
Some psychosocial disabilities include anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and schizophrenia.
All of these not only affect the individuals and families, it affects the whole community and this is where MPC and our recovery coaches can assist.
MPC recovery coaches can provide support to people with psychosocial disability to live a full and contributing life.
