A positive sense of overall well-being can help us feel better, enjoy life, develop relationships, access the same things everyone else can (such as housing, jobs and being able to travel) and deal with life’s challenges as they arise.
While each person’s recovery journey will be unique with their own goals, challenges, skills and supports, the resources below can help all of us look after our own well-being, identify our strengths and overcome the obstacles that may have been preventing recovery.
