Mental health is an often overlooked aspect of public health
"As a public health writer, I strive to bring this component of health into all of my work."
- Katiana Bougouma
Scriptoria Solutions Public Health Writer
A quick rundown of mental health
Knowledge is having information. Wisdom is understanding how your mind uses that information. The idea of mental self-observation is commonly called self-awareness or meta-cognition.
Meta-cognition is the ability to observe yourself feeling emotions; observe yourself having thoughts; observe yourself holding beliefs; and also noticing which feelings, thoughts, and beliefs that are not in you at that moment.
Knowledge of accumulated and lost. Wisdom is honed and lasts forever.
Meta-cognition is the foundation of mental and emotional health. Happily, it is also an acquired skill that we practice and hone.
Our public health writer helps us practice great mental health
At Scriptoria Solutions, giving ourselves the space to respond to our self-observations with self-care and self-comfort is one of our core values.
To this end, our in-house MPH Katiana Bougouma has created a fantastic clickable Resilience Map , Emotional Well-Being Map, and Types of Coping Mechanisms Guide that we use every day. We hope they’ll serve you equally as well.
An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself.
