  • What is Mental Well-Being
    • Mental well-being is defined as the state in which someone has the capability to realize their own abilities, cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and be able to contribute to their community. Mental well-being is not the absence of mental illness nor the eradication of unpleasant experiences. It’s important to note that mental well-being is a life-long journey, not a singular goal to reach. Simply put, mental well-being is the ability to be self-aware, resilient, connected, and fulfilled. With a support system, resources, and self-care, it is possible for anyone to maintain mental well-being.
  • Factors That Contribute to Mental Well-Being
