Be kind to your mind
Your mental health is as important as your physical health. Promoting good mental health and wellbeing can help you feel empowered and resilient to cope with life's stresses. The College’s Strategy 2020 to 2025 states we will be mindful of the need to promote good mental health and a healthy work-life balance.
The idea of good mental health and wellbeing is best described as a subjective condition. For example, good social, economic, spiritual or medical health means that, in a sense, the experience of life is positive or beneficial. Good mental health means responding to challenging circumstances, innovating, and constructively engaging with others and the world around us. It also represents a highly effective way of realising good outcomes in many different areas of our lives.
Good mental health is just as important to our lives as legs are to a table. It is an essential component of physical health and happiness. Our goal is to help you uncover and use some simple tools to improve the well-being of your body and mind.
