Poor mental health can be triggered or worsened by a huge range of factors. But there is one underlying factor which forms the foundation for everything else, yet is often ignored. It is spirituality. We are referring to the sense of connection you have with the world around you and how you find meaning in your life. We at Secret Spirits work with you to transform this part of yourself.
