Mental Health 
Occupational Therapy 

It’s well established that the concept of health refers to much more than the absence of illness. There are many things in life that we ‘must do’, like showering or cleaning the dishes. It’s also very important to do things that we enjoy, or ‘want to do’.


The extent to which we do these things can have a profound effect on our wellbeing and quality of life. There are various ways that our ability to do things can affect our mental wellbeing. Similarly, our mental wellbeing can affect our ability to do things.


Mental health occupational therapists assist people to do things, knowing the impact this has on a person’s wellbeing.
