Promoting wellbeing and preventing mental health problems


Individuals, families, communities, commercial organisations and health professionals can all help to promote mental wellbeing

Mental wellbeing helps us to manage our lives successfully. It provides us with the resilience to deal with distress and disappointment as well as the ability to enjoy happier moments.

Mental health is influenced by experiences in everyday life, in families and schools, on streets, and at work.

Prevention of mental health problems and mental health promotion need to be an integral part of policies at local and national levels.
