Emotional Health & Well Being
Emotional and Mental Well Being defines how we feel, think and relate to ourselves and others. This has an impact on how we understand the world around us. Positive Mental Health improves our ability to manage, communicate, and
form and sustain relationships.
Coping with other changes in our lives are also affected such as bereavement, transition or parental divorce. Statistics show that one in four people will experience Mental Health problems at some point in their lives.
