Psychological Wellbeing


The World Health Organisation defines psychological wellbeing as a state of wellbeing 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. At CSU we understand the importance of creating balance in life, and empowering individuals to be the best they can be. The following links provide an interesting array of internal and external information that aids in supporting psychological wellbeing.
