Mental Health and Wellbeing

Your mental wellbeing is about your thoughts and feelings and how you cope with the ups and downs of everyday life.

Mental health refers to our cognitive, behavioural, and emotional wellbeing – it is all about how we think, feel, and behave. It exists on a continuum and we can change position on this, as our condition improves or deteriorates.
