Positive Mental Well-being is a Set of Life Skills

Positive mental well-being is a set of life skills that help us meet life’s challenges, make positive connections with others, and live life fully. It also allows us to feel good and function well, even in difficult situations.

Without positive mental well-being or good emotional health, people may live unhappy lives, not knowing how to use their own strengths and the resources around them to live life optimally.

Of course, everyone finds themselves in difficult situations that may sometimes feel overwhelming. But having good mental well-being means that a person would not only have the ability to flourish when life is going well but also be able to find the appropriate resources to cope when times are tough.

The Singapore Mental Well-Being Scale measures five dimensions of mental well-being: Resilience, Self-Esteem, Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence and Cognitive Efficacy. These five dimensions not only enhance the quality of your daily life but also help you to face challenges that will come your way.
