Ensuring personal and organisational well-being is a vital requirement for growth. In a community context, well-being is important on multiple levels. An individual’s sense or state of well-being impacts all relationships and therefore can influence the wider community. In an environment of continued growth and change, the potential stressors that can destabilise individuals or the wider community need to be recognised and understood. This is as relevant to all members of a community, whatever their role or function.
Burn-out, anxiety and general mental health concerns are recognised to be a significant and regrettably growing feature of societies. They are affecting people of every background and age. Balance is the key to well-being, and an organisation needs to regularly assess and evaluate the general health and well-being of the people within their community.
