What are your mental health and you goals? - April 4th 2018, 08:43 PM

We have goals to achieve something in our life, like something you would like to try or achieve. This goal setting is about "mental health and you".

I have a few questions.

Do you have any mental health goals for yourself?

Do you have a plan for your mental health?

Are you currently in a support group or counseling? Did you set a goal for yourself to work on?


My mental health goals are:
I have signed myself up for anger management which starts in the summer. My goal is to understand my anger and to better express myself. Currently, I am verbal when I am angry and I want to change that.

I also have signed up for other groups like different ways to journal and a three month group which is a self-management and recovery system (focus on hope, personal responsibility, self-advocacy, support and education).

I am currently in counseling and I have set goals on expressing how I feel to others, my anger, and personal relationships. By achieving those goals I need to try to express how I am feeling.

I'm not in counseling anymore or on medication so my goal would be to eventually get back on medication tbh. I was able to manage a lot better on it.

I think my biggest goals are to get to a place where I can process certain abusive situations I have been through. I also want to get to a place where I don't randomly quit complying with taking medication as I have bipolar and I will need to be on something for life.

Plans are to take my medication again (which I am). I also want to get back into therapy. My biggest plan is to try and start working and figure out tools to deal with stress that comes along with work. I want to have a career but my mental health has impacted my ability to do so for quite some time.

I see a psychiatrist but no counselor. I want to get a counselor but struggling to find one that is good and I connect with. Goal is to ask my psychiatrist about a good trauma therapist and try and start up in May or June.

To become stable on my medicines and to learn to take care of myself so one day I can be well enough to do things on my own. Right now I'm in a place where I'm up and down and my downs are more frequent. I would like that to change. Plus I don't know how to care for myself very well. So these are my goals

I'm in counseling, but between my therapist having surgery and my insurance lapsing, I haven't seen her in forever. Will make an appointment as soon as insurance is reinstated.

I started seeing her to deal with some specific and traumatic things, I feel like that's definitely better, but that I also should've started therapy decades ago, so I'm also using it to deal with other things that I never have. I also started medication which was a night and day difference. As much as I'm not thrilled about being on it forever, I feel so much better that I'm almost afraid to come off of it.

I'm basically rebuilding my entire life, I definitely need more people and wouldn't mind a new hobby that involved some level of social interaction. I just have no idea what it should be.

I'm not sure what my mental health goals are. I guess make more effort for self care, but also to be understanding if things get too difficult for me. But I also need to try new things too

My plan is to recognise triggers and deal with them a bit better as well as improve relations with others.

I'm not in a support group but I am having counselling
