Been a bit topic at home over recent days has mental health. I’m a mental health first aider.
I think that society today has lost mental robustness, my h of this is down to the fact that we don’t interact properly. We speak to each other on our phones using messages, as humans we are essentially pack animals and need real and physical interaction with other members of our species, this interaction builds air mental resilience as we have to deal with different emotions more readily to deal with different situations. E.g. if someone says something we don’t like or agree with on social media we a can turn it off. In the real world we have to gauge an appropriate reaction there and then, if test reaction is incorrect we learn for next time making us stronger in the long run.
Watching the news tonight there was 2 veterans of Dday and ahrnem who’s me in concern was seeing each other as mates and having a drink and a chat, these men probably have demons but they talk and socialise and I imagine never in their lives moaned or complained that their mental health was stopping them go on with their day to day buisness.
Have we by accident created a nation of weaker minded individuals imo we have done.
