Mental wellness is an active process of moving from languishing to resilience to flourishing.
On one level, mental wellness is about prevention; coping with life’s adversity; and being resilient when we face stress, worry, loneliness, anger and sadness.
On another level, mental wellness moves us toward a deeper, richer and more meaningful human experience, which is often described as flourishing. What it means to flourish is subjective and personal, and it is shaped by individual values, culture, religion and beliefs. For one person, it can mean functioning at the top of their game and achieving their life goals, while for another, it might mean self-transcendence.
Even though the mental health field has done a lot of work to mitigate the stigma surrounding mental illness, a sense of shame, denial and secrecy continues to afflict people in communities and cultures around the world. Mental wellness can help shift our focus toward a more positive and empowering approach.
Supporting Black History
The Windrush Generation and their descendants have made significant contributions to British society. Supporting the country to rebuild after the devastation of the Second World War, many went to work in the newly created National Health Service (NHS) as nurses, midwives, auxiliary workers, cooks and cleaners. They drove buses and trains for Transport for London and laboured in factories across the country.
They brought new musical genres to the UK – ska, reggae, lovers rock, calypso, and jazz – and forged successful pathways into politics, media, sports and television.
This year’s celebration will showcase pioneering black women who have made remarkable contributions to literature, music, fashion, sport, business, politics, academia, social and health care, and more.
Sunflower 🌻 Hidden Disabilities
Globally one in six people has a disability, with over 70% of those having an invisible disability.
Hidden disabilities are not immediately apparent. Living with these conditions can make daily life more demanding. They affect each person in different ways and can be painful, and isolating. Without visible evidence of the hidden disability, it is often difficult for others to understand the challenges faced and realise what help might be needed.
Do you have a hidden disability?
Choose to wear the Sunflower lanyard and card when you need to indicate that you may need additional support, understanding or simply more time as you work, travel, shop or visit Sunflower friendly venues and locations.
