Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Globally, there is an enormous number of people living with mental health problems. In academia, it has been acknowledged that addressing mental health problems is challenging and takes time. In research, well-being and ill-being are considered two distinct traditions that respectively refer to health and disease. There has been an increasing trend in the promotion of positive mental health and well-being for all ages. The endeavours in positive mental health promotion aim to enhance the protective factors and cultivate adaptive behaviours that can facilitate the prevention of the onset of diagnosable mental challenges and minimise risk factors that can cause the development of serious mental problems. Although available evidence suggests many ways of promoting well-being and positive mental health that allow people to adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles, there is still a need to better understand the theoretical, empirical, and practical underpinnings of how to function effectively with respect to achieving complete positive mental health. To shed further light on this topic, we seek high-quality empirically rigorous papers on the promotion of well-being and positive mental health. In this special issue, we also welcome conceptual papers that present how methodological rigour could be developed. The papers should rely on the discussion of relevant research by including solid theories and hypotheses. Authors should concentrate on conducting and engaging in well-structured rigorous research. Furthermore, we would be interested in novel findings of uncovered research related to well-being and mental health through rigorous analysis of quantitative data. We will accept well-prepared manuscripts from various disciplines that address topics related to the scope.
