Mental Health and Family Law

This week is Mental Health Week. World Mental Health Day is on 10 October.

There are some great associated awareness raising campaigns - such as the ABCs "Mental As" (www.abc.net.au/mentalas) and the Promise Wall (1010.org.au).

All of which got me thinking about mental health and family law.

As you can easily imagine family law and mental health go hand-in-hand.

All relationships and families go through difficult times.

But if someone is experiencing depression, stress, substance abuse or any number of other mental health illnesses it can bring about the end of a relationship. Domestic violence, financial problems and the effects of addiction are also frequently named as causes of relationship breakdown.  

Even if mental health was not a factor in the breakdown of a relationship dealing with the decision to end a relationship can itself cause stress, anxiety and depression.  

There are a lot of organisations out there who offer services designed especially for families experiences mental health issues. Both The Family Relationships Centre and Relationships Australia offer a range of counselling and programs - including ones designed specifically for people who are separating, as well as counselling in relation to family violence and problem gambling. Other organisations such as Alcoholics Anonymous, the Financial Counselling Helpline and the National Sexual Assault Domestic Family Violence Counselling Service offer issue specific assistance. In addition there are counselling services such as Lifeline (lifeline.org.au) and the Kids Helpline available to help.

While the law has to keep adapting to ensure that it can best respond to each person it has come a long way when it comes to mental health.

  11. " urban upcycle" I just wanted to write a quick little blurb here to let you all know something that you might not know…Pallet furniture doesn’t have to look like a pallet!! For real! Check this out:
    I take apart the pallets, then I remove all the nails and screws that are in them.
    After that I run them through my saw to cut them to the correct width. Some projects need large boards and some projects need smaller boards.
    Last thing that I do to the boards is run them through my thickness plainer so that all the boards I collected are the same thickness and are smooth and ready for a project:

  58. " makeup store " Makeup: Have you ever been to a Sephora or Ulta and you try to do a skin match to get the perfect skin tone?
    Well let me start off and tell you…
    I went to Sephora and I had Sephora representative help me out, she obviously wasn’t my skin color (no offense)
    but I didn’t have the best experience with her because my skin tone was extremely hard to figure out. She used a skin match strip on my face to figure out what color my skin was.
    But it was nearly impossible.
    The products that came up and the products that we tried out was nothing near my skin tone. It was terrible. Some of the makeup made me look like a ghost.
    But knowing me I took matters into my own hands and decided to do it myself and start mixing colors to get the right type of shade. I didn’t know what shade I was going to choose but I know I was going to find the right type of makeup by the end of the day.
    Now let me tell you something my skin tone is in between light and dark so I would say like a Medium brown color.
    Not to dark and not to light…Now tell me…would you have a hard time trying to find the PERFECT skin color match? I would think so. SO finally after spending hours in Sephora I found the perfect product to match my skin tone.
