Government of Western Australia’s Mental Health Commission (MHC) publishes a wealth of resources to help us look after our mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Just like physical health, we also have mental health. According to the World Health Organization, mental health is “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”
Keeping our mind healthy is something we should do on a daily basis. It is an important part of your overall health to be able to function well, have meaningful social connections, positive self-esteem and the ability to cope with change.
