Welcome to the Mental health and Wellbeing section of our Academy website.
Mental health is not just the absence of mental disorder. It is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.
Here in this section, you can find handy tips about maintaining positive mental health and also wellbeing.
