Give me a second of your time please

Hi

I’m new here so haven’t got any fancy art work -just a simple word I hope you will read.I will learn my way around in time I guess.

I would like to get some opinions, and maybe some experiences, any of you have had around mental health either as a person with a mental illness, or friend ,family, therapist, or someone who simply wants to share an opinion.

I find the brain a fascinating organ and I believe in the power of thoughts, words,  feelings,and experiences  hence ‘retrainthebrain’. Science has made some amazing discoveries of how the brain functions and what impacts it positively or negatively.

It saddens me to see so many young people in particular, who are lured into the  mind changing temptation of drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism for their circumstances. Then to have their world turned upside down for the rest of their lives, for something they had no control over, because their brain was malfunctioning, due to a change in their brain response mechanism.I also believe just as brainwashing plays out negatively, it can equally, be played out to change things around to have a positive effect to every day existence.

We are all learning in one way or another at a rapid rate,in technology in particular. We can track existence in Jupiter  but still struggle to manage a healthy, positive, peacefull existence on out own planet here on Earth, for our fellow man.

Lets start a conversation and maybe we will reveal  something new or something usefull.

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you.
