Supporting mental health and well being

What is mental health?

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. It’s about how we think, feel and act. Sometimes we feel well, and sometimes we don’t. When our mental health is good, we feel motivated and able to take on challenges and new experiences. But when our mental health is not so good, we can find it much harder to cope.


'Young minds' define it as the potential our minds have to:

  • grow and develop
  • overcome difficulties and challenges
  • make the most of our abilities and opportunities

Our mental health can feel good and healthy one day, and not so good the next, for lots of different reasons. We can all experience good mental health and poor mental health, or something in between.


When we have good mental health, we feel resilient. 'Young minds' describe resilience as the ability to adapt to the ups and downs of life, navigate situations by using our strengths, and access support from the people around us. Our resilience changes depending on the situation and varies day to day. That’s why it’s important to take steps to look after our mental health.
