Resourceful: How do we utilise what we already have?

Being resourceful is the ability to find and use available resources to solve problems and achieve goals. And this is no different in mental health. According to a 2002 British Medical Journal, people living with a mental health issue and clinicians were using new strategies and sources for acquiring health information, including the Internet. Patients therefore were equipped with information from Internet web searches and online support groups before they arrived at a psychologist or psychiatrist‘s office door. Hence, it is a hugely underrated skill!

So how do we use what resources we have to make our lives better?
