Better Health Channel
Mental health relates to the cognitive, social and emotional wellbeing of individuals, and their families, carers and supporters. Good mental health is a state of overall wellbeing which includes social and emotional wellbeing, not just the absence of mental health challenges. Achieving and maintaining wellbeing is an ongoing process, which may include recovery from specific mental health challenges, and which can change over a person’s life. While this website aims to provide helpful information on a range of mental health challenges and supports, it is acknowledged that everyone has their own language and ways of understanding their experiences.
