In a nutshell: An individual’s mental capital and mental wellbeing crucially affect their path through life.  Moreover, they are important for the healthy functioning of families, communities and society.  Together, they affect behaviour, social cohesion, social inclusion, and our prosperity.  A key conclusion of the Project is that mental capital and mental wellbeing are linked: measures to address one will often affect the other. This argues for them to be considered together when developing policies and designing interventions.
