There has been a major shift in Australia towards understanding and taking care of mental health. However, much of the information presented to us at work or on social media and present us with a superficial understanding of mental health and mental illness.

Here at Life Resolutions, our Director Jodie Brenton wants all Australians to access information on mental health and wellbeing. Luckily, Principal Psychologist Mary Magalotti is here to explain!

What is Mental Health?

Mental health is a combination our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It influences the way we conduct ourselves in our everyday life.

Good mental health will help you thrive in different aspects of life. Someone with good mental health can overcome challenges, realise their own abilities, and achieve their goals. Mental health affects how we see ourselves, and the world around us too.

Signs of good mental health can include:

  • confidence when faced with new situations or people
  • feeling optimistic
  • not blaming yourself
  • setting good goals
  • feel good about yourself and having good self-esteem
