Wellbeing at Home

According to the World Health Organisation, more than 300 million people globally suffer from depression. Depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide and, at its worst, can lead to suicide[1].  Globally, 800 thousand lives are lost to suicide each year[2].

It is crucial to treat mental illness when it occurs and prevent it wherever possible. But it’s equally important to focus on helping people build their quality of social and personal lives through learning about their unique strengths, values, meaning and purpose in their lives and how to be resilient in times of challenge and change.  Through the science of wellbeing, we can teach people the skills to transform their lives and flourish.
