Wellbeing - Mental Wellness

 

The World Health Organisation describes mental wellbeing as:-

Mental health is not just the absence of mental disorder. It is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

During lockdown it has become increasingly difficult to maintain a stable feeling of mental wellness and this can contribute to our physical health, behaviour and our ability to support and care for our families.

The following are a number of links that may provide strategies and supports, some for adults and some for children to help us find a safe way through these unprecedented times.
