Good mental health covers more than avoiding mental illness. Mental wellbeing is about how we manage our thoughts and feelings and deal with the ups and downs we all experience in life. Mental wellbeing can improve resilience to difficult situations, strengthen relationships and even increase life expectancy.
There are things we can all do to support our mental wellbeing such as being physically active, connecting with other people or learning new skills. If you would value further support in this area please get in touch with Ruth on firstname.lastname@example.org or explore one of the organisations below.
