Definitive and user-friendly recovery and support books with a compassionate, straightforward and innovative approach, helping sufferers to recover from mental health issues.
Pullingthetrigger: We believe that recovery from mental health issues is achieved through talking, being open and having the courage to face both the illness and the fears which come along with it. Fear plays a huge and negative role in ongoing mental illness; sufferers fear others’ perception of them, isolation, that nobody – not even themselves – will ever understand what’s happening to them and fear that they might never feel better. Meanwhile fears caused by misconceptions, myths about ‘madness’ and the prospect of having to participate in an ‘awkward’ conversation are still rife in society as a whole. Pullingthetrigger believe there is only one way to conquer these fears; to face them head on.
Pullingthetrigger promotes an innovative style of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and a compassion focussed approach. We believe this approach encourages sufferers to address and face the unwanted ‘trigger situations’, which can sometimes activate sufferers’ responses and intrusive thoughts (cognitive emotional, physiological and behavioural responses) in any given situation. It is a crucial element in sufferers addressing and recovering from their mental health issues.
We want people to talk freely about our name and we want it to open up debate. This is how the war on mental illness will be won; by us all engaging in conversations about mental health. By not talking about mental health and running scared from a simple name, sentence or words, we highlight the main problem that we, as a society, have. The stigmas we attach to the illness give mental health problems more power than they deserve; through misconceptions, incorrect negative connotations and fear we are providing the illness with all it needs to continue to thrive unchallenged. By engaging in conversation and talking about mental health, one by one we can all play a part in ensuring society as a whole can begin to build a platform for recovery.
By talking about mental health, we can pull the trigger on mental illness. By not fighting our mental health problems, but instead having the courage to embrace them, we can pull the trigger on our fears and live a life with purpose.
