When Self-Management Doesn’t Work

Self-management doesn’t work when your health problem is so severe that it has surpassed your ability to cope, such as prior to detoxification or after a serious injury. Self-management may not be effective for short periods of time if you have a flare up of a serious mental illness. You can plan ahead for what you want done if you are too ill and may need to relinquish some important decisions to others. Written health directives are becoming very common and are important for people with a history of mental health and addiction issues to keep themselves safe.
