Finding the Brighter Side of Mental Health​​​​​​


'Girls (and guys) just wanna have fun.'



People today have more options than ever to help them care for their mental health needs. Along with psychology-based therapies, counselling, and endless self-help advice, there is also a growing array of Eastern meditation and mindfulness practices now widely available. While the intention behind cultivating mental and emotional health is to feel better and ‘lighten up,’ the process can often feel anything but light. Conscientious men and women today are overwhelmed not only with all the options available, but also the mounting pressure to keep their mental health in check as part of a “balanced” lifestyle.

After years of interdisciplinary study with a strong focus on critical psychology, creator and founder of Sensitive Self Care, Dr. Joanna Perkins, has found that many well-intentioned approaches to mental health are themselves adding stress and anxiety to many people’s lives. “So much of the talk around mental health and self-care just isn’t fun. A lot of the time it’s really heavy, serious, and time-consuming. On the one hand, much of Western psychology tends to turn every experience into some sort of disorder. Whereas Eastern perspectives around wellness and mindfulness tend to be centred around disciplined practices. Every approach, of course, has its benefits, but people just can’t seem to catch a break – which is really all they’re looking for,” Perkins explains. Sensitive Self Care’s first of several planned online courses, The Ultimate Guide to Calming the EFF Down, is a light, fun and powerful experience designed to bridge this gap.

"Most of the content is very playful, and the format is meant to feel similar to scrolling through social media. While there's a lot of talk out there about the harms of social media consumption, I'm pretty sure it's here to stay and I think it makes sense to leverage that rather than make people feel guilty about it. I want people to have fun doing things they already do every day, but instead of consuming potentially anxiety-inducing content they have access to materials that were purposely created to be empowering and transformative.”

When it comes to their mental health, most people don’t want another tedious chore to add to their to-do lists — they just want simple ways to feel better, faster, and lighten up a little. In the slightly modified words of Cyndi Lauper, “Girls (and guys) just wanna have fun.” Sensitive Self Care gets this and is dedicated to offering mental health support that embraces ease, fun and delight.

EARLY PRAISE FOR THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CALMING THE EFF DOWN



"The idea of learning useful life lessons in a compact and easy-to-read guide seemed too good to be true. However, any reservations I had were blown out of the water. Just from reading through the guide I was able to achieve a state of calm. In fact, I read it all in one sitting because I moved into a focused, meditative state while doing it. 

It seems that with most practical guides, a bit of time commitment is required to practise new lessons. With CTFD I practised the lessons as they were taught to me, resulting in very little time commitment for a wonderful return!"

PRAISE FOR DR. JOANNA PERKINS


What's so unique about how Joanna understands emotions is also what I find to be unique about her understanding of *everything*! She is the only person I have ever met who literally sees the bright side of it all. She not only sees it, but also shows others how to see it, and to see it with so much brightness that it isn't about sides anymore. There's no bright/dark, bad/good, or any other judgement. There's just the way that feels good — because it's the truth. Her vision is entirely unique, and so ahead of the pack. Everything she does sparkles!
 

Casey Campbell
Author, I See Hearts Everywhere and founder, Today Is Magical

 

Dr. Joanna Perkins' interdisciplinary approach to understanding the emotions is groundbreaking. She has an outstanding ability to convey complex ideas using a combination of psychology, critical theory, popular culture and personal examples. Her work informs the way she lives her life and she is someone of profound ethics and radical reflection.
