Mental health and wellbeing

Good mental health, or emotional wellbeing, involves feeling confident about ourselves and happy with who we are. It’s about having a sense of self-worth and being able to cope with life’s ups and downs. Mental wellbeing is important because it influences not only how we think and feel about ourselves, but also how we think and feel about other people. Our mental health can affect how we deal with everyday life and the stresses and challenges it brings, such as relationships, money worries and coping with change.
