Reframing psychosocial disability
Connection is so important – a sense of belonging and being a part of something is one of the most fundamental aspects of life.
As humans we are meant to be together.
Brene Brown describes connection as:
“The energy that exists between people when they feel they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship”
There are truly beautiful elements to that seemingly simple statement, sadly for many, those magical parts of connection and freely given non-judgemental relationship remain elusive or unavailable.
The first part of Mind-Life project is to examine community connection. To understand what it means to be connected and part of community, particularly when many people have experienced exclusion or have felt ill equipped to participate because of the challenges they face.
Exploring and understanding both connection and disconnection from personal perspectives will lead us to design new ways to think and respond.
Look out for how you can be part of Mind-Life.
