Example text

When you believe in yourself, you can find the strength to help yourself and others. Having a healthy mind and spirit is just as important as having a healthy body. When your mind and spirit are healthy, you have the emotional strength to take care of yourself and your family, to see problems and do your best to solve them, to plan for your future, and to form satisfying relationships with others. When you are mentally healthy, you can accept help from other people and still value yourself. Many disabled women develop mental health problems that make it hard for them to face challenges, feel satisfied with their lives, or contribute to the community.

A Health Handbook for Women with Disabilities 2007 52 chapter 3: Mental health Attitudes about disability Communities may also have lower expectations for what girls and women with disabilities can accomplish in life. Having learned they have little to hope for, women with disabilities tend to value themselves less. They often lack the self-confidence to advocate for change in the community. When you grow up surrounded by people who love you but who do not believe you are capable of much, you start to believe that yourself.

Stress, for example, is not a mental health problem, although when you can no longer cope with the challenges you face, too much stress has become a problem. Traumatic events in your life do not always cause mental health problems, but if you have no support in trying to understand them and work through them emotionally, they often do. When thinking about mental health problems, remember: • There is no clear line between normal responses to life’s events and mental health problems. • Most people have some of the signs described in this chapter at different times in their lives, because everyone faces problems at one time or another.
