People in the throes of madness need to hold on to some form of peace, like an anchor, while discovering their innermost serenity. The state hospital centre offers no such peace. Even in someone’s most tormented nights, consumers armed with the right skills, resources, and support can identify a technique to self-manage their internal chaos and external dysfunction. This article is intended to arm readers with the tools necessary to self-manage their own frustration tolerance throttle. It will provide trauma- and peer-informed insights to practitioners to help patients regulate their thinking and feelings as they tune into their mental status and internal barometer for healthy living after discharge from the state hospital centre. Consumers should feel empowered to always live peacefully and independently, regardless of their chosen path to serenity and peace, even when the world becomes too chaotic to live without medical or psychiatric intervention.
