Discovering Good Mental Health

Much of the conversation about mental health focuses on mental ill health, but there's more to mental wellbeing than simply being without mental illness.  Within this course we will be seeking to discover what it means to be in good mental health, and what we can do to foster our own mental wellbeing.  We will reflect on the areas in our lives which help and hinder our wellness and identify ways in which we can flourish, feel good and work towards a balanced life.

Wellness Planning

Based on Mary Ellen Copeland's principles of WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning), we have designed our own wellness planning handbook to help you monitor your wellbeing and mental health.  Over the three sessions we will explore and develop our own daily maintenance plan, identify wellness tools, recognise when we are struggling and develop strategies to manage our difficulties.
