MENTAL WELLNESS

Mental wellness is not about always being happy. It’s about being able to manage well in your daily life – in good and bad times.

Our state of mental wellness does not stay the same all the time. It moves up and down throughout our lives. Tough times in our lives can affect our mental health making it difficult to cope with day to day life. When our mental health is good, we feel well and can enjoy day-to-day life. Mental wellness is affected by a host of factors (many things) – our genetic (how we are born) make-up, state of physical health, past life experiences, living circumstances, and events in our daily lives.

We, at BTV have tied up with Mental Wellness Professionals like Life Coaches, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, etc. To provide different kinds Mental Wellness Solutions including Webinars, Counseling, etc.
