Sick of Brexit?

You wouldn't expect me to tell you my views on Brexit. Therapists are notoriously tight-lipped about their own opinions - after all, it's not about us! However, both sides of the current debate appear to have something to teach us about psychological helath. The 'leave' side emphasises autonomy and self-determination, and of course an appropriate level of independance and control over our own lives is very important for mental well-being. On the 'remain' side it's all about co-operating and being stronger together, values which are equally crucial for emotional health.

A balance of the two feels important. Too much individualism can leave us isolated. Too much connection can be suffocating. But from a secure, independent sense of ourselves we can make fulfilling connections with others and the world. 

And my views? I guess I can see both sides...
