Mental health & wellbeing

Good mental health and wellbeing is the foundation for thriving individuals, families and communities.

Stronger mental health and wellbeing brings many benefits in terms of:

  • improved physical health and life expectancy
  • better learning outcomes and educational achievement
  • increased ability to get and maintain employment
  • greater community engagement
  • improved quality of life.

It also builds resilience in individuals and communities, who are more able to cope in difficult times such as drought, natural disasters or challenging economic circumstances.
