Holding the Fort - Managing Crises
Your ability to cope with, and to recover from physical injury or illness depends on your general health before the advent of the event. Similarly, your ability to cope with crisis depends primarily on how mentally healthy you are prior to the arrival of one or the other personal catastrophe. Being psychologically robust and resilient is the positive consequence of having your metaphorical ducks in a row or, more accurately, your Keystone Principles of mental health in order well before the proverbial hits the fan.

Nowhere is the old saying prevention is better than cure more relevant than it is in the context of mental health. Your metaphorical crisis comes in the dead of night for good reason.

They come out of the blue and are seldom if ever convenient.

The idea of setting resolutions is not inherently flawed. However, the way they are approached and executed will impact their success. The simple fact that the resolutions are made upon the advent of the New Year in no way affects the likelihood of you being successful in maintaining them.
Life is a very untidy business. And therapy is a gritty, often very messy process to boot. Psychological problems very seldom occur in isolation. Far more often mental health issues manifest themselves in a combination of complex, interconnected and interdependent ways.
