Creating a culture of well-being and belonging


Well-being is vital to developing effective problem-solving skills, building and maintaining successful interpersonal relationships and realistic goal setting, all of which greatly enhance your ability to perform and contribute meaningfully in daily life. In the face of an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, our actions can make the difference as to whether you embrace the challenges you are confronted with or whether you are defeated by them. We acknowledge that psychological well-being is a looser term, embracing a range of ‘soft skills’, which are more dependent on an individual’s social and cultural context, as well as the individual’s professional preferences and career aspirations.

Mental health is an integral element of a person’s overall state of health. “Mental health” is an umbrella term encompassing a range of mental health states, from diagnosable mental illness and mental health difficulties at one end of the spectrum, to mental well-being and a state of flourishing at the other. 

A positive state of mental health – mental well-being, thriving or flourishing – requires more than the absence of mental health difficulties. Well-being is associated with experiences of personal growth, intrinsic motivation, positive relationships, autonomy and competence. A person’s state of mental health fluctuates over time, in response to many factors including physical health, life events and environmental conditions that increase protective or risk factors. 

Belonging has been widely explored and its benefits are greatly linked to a global sense of well-being, optimism, self-esteem, and stress management. As we live in uncertain times which have led to a loneliness epidemic, more than ever we need to focus on building organisational cultures that foster social support, respect, and social strategies that help us to grow together. This helps us to understand the meaning of healthy relationships in organisational systems and how essential it is to build strong relationships, based on comfort, authentic connections, and contribution. 

In this program we explore the concepts of personal well-being and belonging through a series of activities. Through this program, we will throw back a look at our most common traits as individuals, such as empathy, compassion, and respect. Building a resilient mental health and caring about our social system will ensure us an enlarged feeling of well-being and an increased sense of belonging. Approaching mental health and its impact will help you widen your understanding and awareness of what others may be going through. Also, knowing the most appropriate support techniques to use on both yourself and others, will help you to be more confident in your abilities.
