Is there a difference between wellbeing and mental health?
“a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
As Dr Gega explains in the video, digital media can have positive and negative effects for both our mental wellbeing and our mental health.“If you experience low mental wellbeing over a long period of time, you are more likely to develop a mental health problem.If you already have a mental health problem, you’re more likely to experience periods of low mental wellbeing than someone who hasn’t. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have periods of good wellbeing.”
