Health and Wellbeing
Good health and wellbeing is about positive mental and emotional health, as well as the absence of any diseases or disorders. People with poor health and wellbeing can find it harder to overcome difficulties they may face and to get what they want out of life.
Conversely, having good mental wellbeing lowers the risk of poor physical health and risk-taking behaviour.
Women who are vulnerable or leading chaotic lives, can find it difficult to manage their health and wellbeing, because they may have other more pressing problems, such as unhealthy relationships or unstable accommodation.
The risk of developing a mental health condition is higher for people living with a long-term condition.
Similarly, women who are living in poverty or who have caring responsibilities, may have put their own health and wellbeing needs on hold, or experience poorer mental wellbeing as a result of isolation and lack of a support network.
Here at Women’s Work we understand that good health and wellbeing is fundamental to enabling women to take back control of their lives and work towards a more positive future.
