Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

I was so pleased with the response to the party and those who took part in the quiz and left their links. I did manage to feature some of the requests but there was simply not enough time to include everyone… So… I will be sharing those guests and their links and music choices in the Blogger Daily slot for the rest of the week.

As such, they may find it harder to choose a path which suits, or helps them back to health. For the most part, this lack of knowledge is a result of mental health misunderstandings. We still don’t treat it the way we do a physical illness. And, while it’s past time attitudes change, that doesn’t help us in the present day.

If you develop a mental illness, it’s crucial you know the recovery options available. Otherwise, your journey will be longer and harder to cope with. Whether you’re already suffering, or simply want to prepare, we’re going to look at the options you’ll face, and their purposes.
