Mental and emotional health
Our mental and emotional wellbeing is constantly challenged through everyday activity, and can be put under stress when faced with things like:
- health problems
- financial and personal security
- job loss
- family breakdown
- academic demands
- relationship difficulties and parenting roles
It is natural for mental and emotional wellbeing to change in response to life-changing events.
People react differently and it is important to recognize that these experiences can have an impact on how we feel, think, behave and function every day.
The complete state of wellbeing allows people to cope with the problems life throws at them, work better, and make greater contributions to their communities.
For information on staying healthy, coping, and what to do if you are struggling or worried about someone you know, go to Livewell – Healthy minds .
