Mental Health Wellness Plans:

The World Health Organisation defines mental health as a state of wellbeing where a person has the ability to cope with everyday stressors, work productively, contribute to their community and fulfil their potential. Mental wellbeing is about functioning well psychologically, emotionally and socially. It is a complex construct made up of meaning, a sense of autonomy, purpose, positive emotions and mastery. A crucial part of wellbeing is a sense of connection with people and/or place (The Mind Room).

Psychologists have traditionally focussed on the treatment of mental health issues and risk reduction. Now there is research showing the benefits of building wellbeing or “mental fitness” in a similar way that we would approach building physical fitness. The benefits of greater wellbeing or mental fitness include: better performance, greater resilience, better relationships, lower stress, better physical health and living longer. We can help you develop your own wellbeing plan suited to your individual strengths and needs.
