Do we disagree with the right people?

Headline:  Ivanka Trump cuts off Cosmo reporter after tough questioning

 

I always check the ‘moments’ section each time I go on Twitter.  It’s the quickest way I find to get snippets of news quickly.

 

The headline above attracted my attention as did the Twitter comments.  The crux of the story is Ivanka was questioned by a journalist on a statement her father Donald Trump made about parental leave only being open to women as they are the ones that have the children.  Her responses didn’t satisfy the journalist who kept probing. Eventually Ivanka left the interview.

 

Two things struck me about this.  Firstly the daughter defending her father situation, but more the second.  Was the journalist right to probe Ivanka on comments her father has made about potential future policies when she isn’t his media spokesperson, head of his policy makers etc.

 

Are children – even adult children – responsible for their parents actions/comments?

 

Do we always disagree with the right people or do we try to get the answers we want from the wrong people?

Mental Health – Be Prepared……………………….

I’ve written previously about IAPTs – Improving Access to Psychological Therapies – a great resource for self referral with mental health issues- big or small.

 

I’ve used the local IAPT – SLAM – for several Growing Talent Associates with great results.  Not only did those involved get the right support but grew in confidence in all areas – true empowerment!

 

Now the NHS has an excellent service.  Just put your postcode – home or/and work into the home page and a list of Mental Health specialist organisations in that area will be shown.

 

The information on the website includes the organisation, location, ratings of users and whether you can self-refer or not.  If you can, you can click on the link shown and refer immediately via the on-line form.

Why not use the website to get some local organisations that can help for both work and home and keep the contact details in your mobile – best to be prepared!

 

Refreshing to see some real investment in the Mental Health arena.  Let’s see more!
