There is hardly a day goes by when there is not a story about mental wellbeing. Not only the effect of poor mental wellbeing on individuals but also how low mental wellbeing has a real detrimental effect on the economy. The BetterMe approach can help build up mental wellbeing for individuals and also help businesses tackle low mental wellbeing.
Research shows that people’s mental wellbeing has decreased, there has been a rise in general anxiety, (War et al, 2015; Lessof et al, 2016) and with other metal health issues.
BetterMe sessions will show the relationship to the beliefs and way of thinking to high anxiety, low confidence, low self-esteem, lack of resilience and emotional intelligence. Our sessions show people how to lower anxiety, build up confidence, self-esteem, resilience and emotional intelligence in a practical, interesting and easy way.
The person’s sense of internal control will have been strengthened and they will have improved their ability to learn, develop and thrive regardless of external factors affecting their lives.
The interactive sessions will be fun, enabling people to develop self-understanding and build resilience through specially designed discussions, exercises, challenges and activities.
Research also has demonstrated that both a sense of control and self-esteem are important to a range of educational, work, psychological and health related outcomes. Just some of the evidence that underpins the Better Me approach: Abouserie (1994); Diener & Dweck, 1978; Borman & Overman, 2004; Gale, Batty, & Deary, 2008.
