What is strength based mental health?
In a nutshell, it’s focussing on growing and building what are often referred to as soft skills that have been demonstrated as an asset in supporting overall health. Mental health issues are on the rise and there is a strong focus placed on the many different diagnoses that are affecting millions and rightfully so. Looking at mental health from a strength based approach teaches techniques to foster resilience, optimism, grit, a positive self-image, mindfulness and healthy self-esteem while acknowledging the barriers and limitations that mental health issues can create. Mieka has created an 8-week protocol for adults, youth and athletes. In these programs participants are taught science based tools to strengthen the “soft-skills” that research demonstrates are key factors in helping to cope and thrive when dealing with mental health issues or life in general.
