Emotional wellbeing

NEW Wellbeing Banner

Mental wellness is generally viewed as a positive attribute, such that a person can reach enhanced levels of mental health, even if the person does not have any diagnosed mental health conditions. This definition of mental health highlights emotional wellbeing, the capacity to live a full and creative life, and the flexibility to deal with life's inevitable challenges.

Stress, depression and anxiety can contribute to a host of physical ailments including digestive disorders, sleep disturbances, and lack of energy. Emotional and mental health issues can often be brought on by the strains of life situations, like caring for an older family member, dealing with Alzheimer's disease, suffering the loss of a loved one, juggling the responsibilities of a busy lifestyle or dealing with substance misuse.

In an increasingly difficult world, many people find they struggle with low mood or anxiety. The effect of struggling with these emotions can lead to difficulties in everyday life and in the longer term can affect an individuals' ability to work or socialise and may damage relationships.
