Mental well-being describes your mental state - how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life.
Our mental well-being is dynamic. It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.
If you have good mental well-being you are able to:
- feel relatively confident in yourself and have positive self-esteem
- feel and express a range of emotions
- build and maintain good relationships with others
- feel engaged with the world around you
- live and work productively
- cope with the stresses of daily life
- adapt and manage in times of change and uncertainty
