Our globalised world and highly technological environments have created many challenges and complexities that adversely impact health and wellness levels in our daily lives. These developments have generated an increased awareness of the vital importance of mental as well as physical healthcare in our professional and personal life to cope and adapt to new and constantly changing personal, social and societal dynamics.
