What is Youth Wellbeing?



Most young people are expected to take personal responsibilities in looking after themselves. At the same time, they are not taught or shown what to look for in enhancing their wellbeing, "the foundation of their being."


Until recent mental health campaigns, youths' minds and emotional wellbeing have been ignored and seen as a joke. For you as a teenager to be empowered and equipped to look after your health and wellbeing, firstly, you want to be curious about yourself and your wellbeing?


What is Wellbeing

I agree with Diener, Lucas, & Oishi's definition of wellbeing. They defined well-being as a person’s cognitive and affective evaluations of their own life (Diener, Lucas, & Oishi, 2002, p. 63).


A youth’s wellbeing can then be described as how a young person thinks, feels, and functions both on a personal and social level and how he or she assesses their own experiences daily.


It is important as young people learn and develop their thinking capabilities; there’s an equal need to have emotions in mind. And building their confidence towards recreating the balance in strengthening their mind & emotional wellbeing. #manyhappyreturns
