About Mental Health
Mental Health affects us all. How we think and feel about ourselves and our lives impacts on our behaviour and how we cope in tough times.
It affects our ability to make the most of the opportunities that come our way and play a full part amongst our family, workplace, community and friends. It’s also closely linked with our physical health.
Whether we call it well-being, emotional welfare or mental health, it’s key to living a fulfilling life.
Being mentally healthy doesn’t just mean that you don’t have a mental health problem.
Mental health problems range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to serious long-term conditions.
Good mental health is not simply the absence of diagnosable mental health problems.
There are a number of ways in which you can keep yourself in good mental health.
