Mental Well-being is Related to You

Mental well-being can take many different forms, but a common description is feeling good and functioning well. Mental health is an integral part of the whole person. A healthy mind helps us face challenges, solve problems, achieve goals and enjoy life more. A person with a healthy mind is also less vulnerable to certain health problems and has a longer lifespan.

Everyone should look after his/her mental health. A local survey conducted in 2019 showed that more than half of the respondents aged between 12 and 75 rated their mental health as fair or very poor/poor in the past six months, and about 8% of the respondents experienced severe psychological distress in the past one month. It is very common for most of us to face mental health challenges at some point in our life so no one can disregard it. 

Looking after your mental well-being is not difficult. By integrating the elements of “Sharing”, “Mind” or “Enjoyment” into your daily life, you can live a healthier, happier and more meaningful life.
