‘Distress Tolerance: The Great Mental Health Experiment’

Everyone has those moments when you feel out of control. It's how you deal with it that counts.

In this video 'Your Beth Friend' explores things that can help with mental health by testing out some legit ways to focus your mind when you’re freaking out.

The fancy word for this distress tolerance - matching our intense feelings with intense experiences in safe, controlled ways. This helps give your brain a break from your emotions so it can do its job and get us back to balance. These skills are especially helpful if you want to do something unhelpful, like self harm or punch someone.

Hope you enjoy it!
