I’ve written before that I learn as much from fiction about madness and sanity as I do from my library of books on mental health. For the Pratchett fans among us, I’ve always loved the mottos Vetinari (the leader of a large city) lives by, such as :
Never build a dungeon you wouldn’t want to spend the night in yourself. Never build a dungeon you can’t get out of.
I feel this is highly applicable above for those of us working in mental health, that is :
Never create a resource it would be beneath your dignity to seek support through.
Would not the world then be a much happier place? I rather think so.

Awesome quote Sarah! I think your right. It does apply to all mental health issues and us who struggle with them too. XX
Thanks guys 🙂 xx
Hmmm….I am thinking that could also translate as ”never work for a service you would not seek support from.” Food for thought!
It certainly could be! Having said that, I’m deeply grateful to those brave souls who have put themselves in such services and shown me human kindness.
