Mental Health and Wellbeing​​​​​​​

"Happiness is the highest form of health." - Dalai Lama

Wellbeing and the idea of maintaining a state of ‘wellness’ has been around for centuries in its various forms. In modern times, it is often described as simply feeling good.

Wellbeing can be linked to a number of different benefits including improved physical and mental health, faster recovery times from illness, higher educational attainment, greater productivity and an overall healthier lifestyle.

The World Health Organisation states that wellbeing is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

Ultimately, wellbeing is important for ourselves, our family, friends and fellow workers and is a vital component that allows us all to flourish in all aspects of life.
