WHAT IS MENTAL WELL-BEING?: "It is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realises their own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to their community."
Simply, mental well-being can be described as a mix of how we feel (our emotions and life satisfaction) and how we function (relationships with others, personal control, purpose in life and independence). It is something that affects everyone, old and young, and anyone can experience good or poor mental well-being.
Mental health is a spectrum and applies to everyone - it's part of the human condition! There are days when you are at one end and there are days when you are at the extreme end.
