What is mental wellbeing?

It's useful to start with the idea that overall wellbeing involves both the mind and the body.

There is a deeper kind of wellbeing, which is about living in a way that is good for you and good for others around you.

Feelings of contentment, enjoyment, confidence and engagement with the world are all a part of mental wellbeing. Self-esteem and self-confidence are, too. So is a feeling that you can do the things you want to do. And so are good relationships, which bring joy to you and those around you." NHS Choices >

Evidence shows finding purpose, meaning , accepting yourself  and caring for others all contribute to positive mental wellbeing .
