What is wellbeing?

Wellbeing can be understood as how people feel and how they function, both on a personal and a social level, and how they evaluate their lives as a whole. It includes having good mental health, high life satisfaction, a sense of meaning or purpose, and the ability to manage stress. More generally, wellbeing is just feeling well.

The Buddy Program

Conversion can be a lonely and difficult process. We are here to help you and encourage you at every step of the way. Sometimes people need that extra support and our dedicated buddy program has been developed to take care of that need. You can register your interest here and withdraw from the program at anytime you wish.
