Mental Health assessments

Jun 14 2021

Everyone experiences episodes where they are unable to make decisions, whether they are tired and overworked, or an illness has impaired their mental capacity. Patients are defined as unable to make sound decisions when: they are unable to retain information long enough, they don’t understand the decision that is being asked of them, or if they are severely mentally disabled.

To assess a patient’s mental capacity to make reasonable and logical decisions, their family and close ones need to be included, and every effort has to be made to communicate with that patient before their decision is taken away. Here are some key ways that you can assess if a patient needs medical intervention to maintain their well-being.

Reintegration anxiety: tips to support emotional wellbeing to bust post-pandemic stress 

May 24 2021

I think I can speak for the majority of parents when I say that the pandemic has been stressful trying to manage online schooling, smart-working, while keeping a decent level of fitness and healthy habits to prevent depression.

Yet now that lockdown is finally over, I feel a little reintegration anxiety. 

In this blog I am sharing tips to bust post-pandemic stress, which is now linked to our release into the world after over a year spent in isolation. Despite our eagerness to see our friends and family, to party, to attend live gigs, I believe that the feeling of places being too ‘peopley’ can be overwhelming.

May 17 2021

If lockdown has had any single benefit to our lives, it’s that it has made us far more conscious about cleanliness and hygiene. It’s hard to believe that it was not two years ago when someone may have gone from the supermarket to the bus to the home – all without the thought of sanitising their hands or wearing a mask.

The rush for cleaning products caused empty shelves across the country, meaning most of us were forced to pick up our newly crowned ‘essentials’ online. This meant we were searching more and more for new cleaning products and tips and advice on how to keep ourselves and our family safe from the outside world.
