Mental health and wellbeing

Mental Wellbeing

We all have mental health, like we all have physical health. Both change throughout our lives. And, like our bodies, our minds can become unwell at any stage of life.

Anyone can be affected by mental health regardless of age, profession, employment status, and so on.  It is everybody's business and can affect people at different stages of their lives. Certain events may have an impact on our mental wellbeing, the same as it might on our physical health.

The New Economics Foundation considered the evidence around the key factors that help us to stay well and improve our mental wellbeing. The evidence is centred around the Five Ways to Wellbeing.
