Emily Litten is Executive Director of Guernsey Mind, a local mental health charity. Guernsey Mind’s vision is of a society that has a positive attitude towards mental wellbeing and where the community embraces respect for all.
“We provide a service that promotes positive mental health for the community and we campaign locally to improve services, raise awareness and encourage understanding”
Emily’s talk will cover Positive Psychological Interventions (PPI) and how best these techniques can be used for a healthier mind. PPI’s are different to traditional interventions:
- These focus on reduction of negative states e.g. depression and anxiety
- PPI’s focus on positive mental states
- PPI’s impact is personal according to preference, cultures, and signature strengths
- The hedonic treadmill vv broaden and build theory
