Mental wellbeing describes your mental state - how you are feeling and how well you can manage day-day life.

 

Our mental wellbeing is dynamic.  It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year

 

If you have positive mental wellbeing, you are able to:

  • Feel relatively confident in yourself and have positive self-esteem

  • Feel and express a range of emotions

  • Build and maintain positive relationships

  • Feel engaged with the world around you

  • Live and work productively

  • Manage the stresses of daily life

  • Manage in times of change and uncertainty

We never know when our positive mental health will start to change. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone.  

 

You would be surprised at the number of people who experience problems with their mental health.

 

Many of them cope because they talk to someone. They also take action to change the way they think about themselves or things that have happened to them in their lives.

Remember, if you are stressed or have experienced a life-changing event, help is available. Contact the WestKing Safeguarding Team whenever you want - you are not alone.
