According to psychiatrist Dr Judith Mohring, women are twice as likely to suffer from anxiety disorders and are 2.5 times as likely to develop depression. This is in no small part due to the challenges faced by women in modern life and the ways in which they impact their mental and emotional wellbeing.
If this resonates with you, our Mental Resilience Toolkit has been designed specifically to help you overcome the challenges faced in modern life. Over the course of 12 modules, we’ll look at how those challenges impact your mental and emotional wellbeing, and, more importantly, you'll discover actions you can take to stay well.
The course can be taken in your own time, and revisited any time and in any order. It’ll help you become more successful and lead a happier, more fulfilled life.
THE DANGERS OF NOT ACTING
It’s far easier to not take action when it comes to mental health. But that doesn't make you any weaker. The fact you’re reading this page proves that you want to do something about the way you’re feeling.
Unfortunately, women often respond to mental health problems by trying to take control of everything, but this simply doesn’t work; it typically just leaves you feeling like you have to do everything on your own.
This can lead to several problems:
- feelings of helplessness;
- relationship problems; and
- complete breakdown.
The good news? You can avoid all of the above and take control of your life once more with the help of our 12-module course.
ABOUT YOUR TRAINER:
Claire Russell - Founder, Trainer, Speaker & Coach
Claire has been running successful businesses in the financial services sector for over 20 years.
This has given her a very broad business knowledge and a great deal of experience in overcoming the challenges that all business owners face at some time in their business careers.
Claire started to use some of her time to help others as a volunteer with Samaritans, after experiencing a difficult period in her life. She realised that she wanted to use her skills and experiential knowledge to help other people facing difficult times; and in particular, mental health issues. This led her to undergo various additional training programs via Samaritans, Mental Health First Aid England, and as a Coach; to begin volunteering and working privately with people; and to start speaking candidly about issues relating to mental health and suicide.
In March 2018 Claire experienced a double tragedy - the loss of her partner due to suicide and shortly after, the loss of their unborn child. Experiencing loss like this has made Claire all the more determined to take her experience, training, and knowledge and help as many people as possible. Her vision is to lead a global shift in attitudes towards mental health and suicide.
In the last few years, having become increasingly concerned by the growing epidemic of mental health problems, she has become passionate about helping to effect change by educating people, by breaking down taboos, and by opening up the conversation about mental health.
Claire leads our program development, delivers training and coaching, and is a prolific speaker. She continues to be a committed volunteer, giving much of her time to her local Samaritans branch.
As well as being a listening volunteer with The Samaritans, Claire is also qualified as a Mental Health First Aider and CLARITY Practitioner.
