Mental well-being

Age Institute has been a pioneer in strengthening older people’s mental well-being. We see well-being consisting of mental strengths, resources and life experience. In our work older people’s perspectives are heard and appreciated in order to build a positive vocabulary on mental well-being. We focus on positive psychology and solution-focused approach. In gerontological work we promote good encounters, appreciative communication and enhancing inclusion.

Our research and development projects produce diverse data and tools regarding mental well-being. We publish materials and arrange trainings to spread good practices to everyday life in gerontological work.

We all can strengthen our mental well-being by focusing on positive things in our everyday lives, developing our resources, facing challenges as possibilities and appreciating our own life experiences. Join us in strengthening mental well-being!
