The World Health Organization describes mental well-being as “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes their own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to their community.”
Still, it is important to know that there is no single definition of mental well-being accepted universally. Instead, it can have unique meaning to different groups, cultures, contexts, and individuals.
By promoting mental well-being, we aim to prevent negative outcomes.
