Having good mental health and emotional wellbeing – what some people call happiness – isn’t just about avoiding mental health problems.
It means feeling good about yourself and coping well with the everyday pressures of life. Each and every one of us can feel like things are getting on top of us, but it’s important to recognise the signs that suggest what you’re feeling is becoming a problem. Maybe you’re having trouble sleeping, or you’ve lost interest in the things you usually enjoy. You might find yourself overreacting to things, or have difficulty concentrating.
All these things could be a sign of deeper problems under the surface. If you’re feeling like this, the right support can help recovery and help you to regain a positive outlook on life.
