Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) encourages the sufferers to learn to accept their problems instead of staying in distress or denials. It helps people to stop fighting or feeling guilty. Sometimes people at a point of suffering tend to believe that everything is fine or will be fine and try to see everything in a positive outlook. Some others tend to deny their sufferings. All these attitudes worsen their mental health suffering. The primary healing process can begin when someone learns to accept whatever is happening. This attitude towards their pain makes it easier to cure and to deal healthy whenever triggers happen.
