What is mental wellbeing?
It's useful to start with the idea that overall wellbeing
involves both the mind and the body.
There is a deeper kind of wellbeing which is about living in a
way that is good for you and good for others around you.
''Feelings of contentment, enjoyment, confidence and engagement
with the world are all a part of mental wellbeing.
Self-esteem and self-confidence are too. So is a feeling that
you can do the things you want to do. And so are good
relationships, which bring joy to you and those around you."
Evidence shows finding purpose, meaning,
accepting yourself and caring for others all contribute
to positive mental wellbeing.
