Mental illness comprises a wide range of disorders and varies in its severity. The effect of mental illness can be severe on the individuals and families concerned and its influence is far-reaching for society as a whole. Social problems commonly associated with mental illness include poverty, unemployment or reduced productivity and homelessness. Those with mental illness often experience problems such as isolation, discrimination and stigma.
I just wanted to thank you for helping George and I kick the dreaded cigarettes.
The birthday party was fine and there was a smokers table outside and I just looked on thinking ‘yuck’. Mind you I have had little trigger cravings but soon after they disappear it’s so amazing!!!
I also felt really flat and agro directly after and cried often and realised just how much stuff I have been bottling up. But now (apart from feeling fluey) I’m feeling much more open emotionally.
George has been rather the opposite of his normal self – walking around singing making jokes and we are talking about our difficult non smoking moments and how we are both getting through them.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us make this possible. You are very talented at what you do and when I have some time I’d love to continue some treatment with you for my other issues.
