Positive Psychology and Wellbeing eLearning Series

Start your learning journey in Mental Health and Wellbeing

Our mission is to help our clients create mentally healthy workplaces. We know that prevention and early intervention can profoundly impact a person’s wellbeing both at work and at home. With this in mind, we have developed a Positive Psychology and Wellbeing eLearning Series to help you improve your wellbeing and mental health using the latest research in psychological self-management.

What is positive psychology?


Positive psychology is the ‘scientific study of optimal functioning of people and organisations.’ It focuses on aspects of the human condition that lead to psychological wellbeing, fulfilment, and flourishing. There are three central concerns: positive experiences, positive individual traits and positive institutions. In other words, it is a humanistic approach to psychology that goes beyond managing negative emotions and focuses on building positive emotions.

The benefits of positive psychology and wellbeing


The goal of positive psychology is to improve psychological wellbeing and to increase the prospect of success at work and beyond. In addition to helping us feel good, positive wellbeing translates into other benefits such as enhanced performance, increased self-awareness, improved emotional self-regulation, better and more meaningful relationships with others and enriches our life experience.

Who is this eLearning Series for?


These short courses are suitable for everyone interested in learning how to apply positive psychology techniques to improve their outlook and responses at home, at work and in general life.

Course Format


These are self-paced eLearning courses delivered via MHScot’s Learning Management System. This means that you can start anytime, learn at your own pace, apply the techniques, reflect and integrate your knowledge in your everyday life.

Course Topics

The eLearning courses put selected positive psychology theories into practice and allow learners to consider the context within organisations and its applications in life.
