Mental Wellbeing refers to cognitive, behavioural, and emotional wellbeing. It is all about how people think, feel, and behave. Looking after Mental Wellbeing can sustain a person’s ability to enjoy life. Doing this involves reaching a balance between life activities, responsibilities, and efforts to achieve psychological strength. We want to view Mental Wellbeing in a positive light. This allows us to focus on strategies to help us with self-awareness, self-communication, investment in self-development and the learning and application of essential life skills.
