“Learning mindfulness and techniques to calm myself have really helped me to cope when stressed.” – Shazi

Overview

Good mental health and wellbeing is about more than feeling happy all the time and having positive experiences. Mental health and wellbeing involves many components that interact in our everyday lives. 

So, what helps us thrive, not just survive? It's a combination of things, and is different for everyone. Physical health, a sense of purpose and meaning, feeling connected with other people, and feeling safe and supported are all important facets of thriving.

Keeping on top of our mental health is a dynamic and ongoing process. Finding the right balance of elements that help us thrive is something that we can all aim towards - to improve and maintain our mental health. 

For more information on general wellbeing, take a look at our pages on connectedness and purposeful activity, or check out the resources at the bottom of this page.
