Mental health and the maintenance of one’s own mental well-being is a topic that has come to the fore more and more recently. However, we find that people know surprisingly little about how mental discomfort can manifest itself, how it is possible to take care of oneself and how significantly it relates to how we live with how we are doing mentally. The paper will focus on exploring this topic from the perspective of the MOHO (Model of Human Occupation) and from the perspective of a person with own experience with mental illness. We will offer short self-experience exercises based on the MOHO model that can contribute to understanding your own ways of acting and influencing your health. We will also focus on the impact that the current pandemic situation and the associated demands for changes in performance of activities may have on our psychic abilities. Finally, we will share ideas on how to manage increasing stress and stress and maintain our own mental well-being.
Hosted by one of our miniSPOT’s, SPOTPrague, this is a meeting about how to take care of your own well-being from the viewpoint of an Occupational Theraphist and Peer Consultant.
