Wellbeing is the subjective state of being healthy, happy, contented, comfortable and satisfied with one’s quality of life. Surprisingly, we can experience symptoms of illness or not be able to perform the way others do – but we can still feel well. In this module we look at this positive sense of wellbeing which enables an individual to be able to function in society and meet the demands of everyday life. This is a useful and powerful learning experience as children and adults in good mental health have the ability to recover more effectively from illness, change or misfortune.
