“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. It involves many factors that interact in our day-to-day lives.

So, what helps us thrive? It's a mix of things, and it is different for everyone. Physical health, a sense of purpose, feeling connected with others, and feeling safe and supported all play a key role.

Looking after our mental health is an 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, we have pages on connectedness and purposeful activity. We also have resources at the bottom of this page.
