Mental Health Guideline

Mental health disabilities are characterized by significant difficulties in learning, thinking, solving problems, discovering the world around and developing everyday skills. All people with disabilities are able to learn something and keep a fruitful and happy life. Do not think that the dysfunctions of the mental abilities are associated with other health limitations. People with mental disabilities are able to feel the influence of the whole life. Some people may need support only in certain specific areas, while others need support in almost every area of life. Limiting mental abilities often affects personal relationships, social skills, and self-care abilities. They also affect a person’s ability to learn and create memories. Common causes include head injuries, Down’s syndrome and fetal alcohol syndrome. Often, mental health disabilities are associated with other disabilities.

The leukemia and lymphoma community suggested several runners to run a marathon distance and raise funds in support of those who need help. In return, the community paid the athletes for the road to the marathon venue and also arranged a unique sports training. Now thousands of people all over the world are participating in charity runs.

Right Motivation for Lowe’s Hero Project

Any non-profit organization that has been working with volunteers for a long time has its unique experience in this field. The head of Gallatin Mental Health told us about the motivation with which people come to volunteer and whether it is possible to “motivate” a person for long-term quality work. Motivation among people is very different, and for ourselves, we divide it into two groups: The first is when a man has personal motivation, holistic, aim-oriented. This is a great value. We can always rely on people with such motivation. They come with a clear desire and readiness for social service and most often do not choose their form for volunteering. Relatively speaking, if you need to care about the bed patient in the hospital, they will do it; will wash the floors if needed. That is, these are people who are ready to go with a trusted organization in…
