Evidence-Based Wellbeing was created by Adele Bergin: a Psychologist and Lawyer from Melbourne, Australia. Adele has published scientific research related to enhancing wellbeing in journals such as Mindfulness, The International Journal of Stress Management, and Anxiety, Stress and Coping.
“Each year, university researchers invest significant time and money conducting psychological research. This research is then published in academic journals, where it often remains, unread and unused. The aim of EBW is to make this research accessible to the people it was designed to help.
A growing body of scientific research shows that implementing strategies to improve wellbeing not only leads to a happier and more fulfilling life, but can also help in prevention and recovery from mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety.
The World Health Organization estimates that there are more than 300 million people in the world affected by depression. Where I can I try to apply research to help people experiencing depression.
I ultimately hope EBW becomes a community in which people can share how they have applied research to improve their own lives - so we can then learn from each other."
