A new book on the importance of ‘mental wealth for mental health’ has been launched in Enniskillen.

Complied by local woman Emma Weaver, who lives in Enniskillen, the book – ‘Mental Wealth: A Guide to Being Rich by Seeking Enrichment’ – was launched at Enniskillen Workhouse on Tuesday evening.

This is Emma’s third book. She has previously written a fictional novel, ‘The Blue Line’, which documents a woman’s journey with IVF, which later went on to become an international best-seller.

Emma later authored ‘The Wealthy Mindset’ with her sister, Karen.

A mum of three, Emma is the founder of Mental Wealth International, an organisation supporting businesses to achieve better mental health and wellbeing within the workplace.

In addition, Emma is a two-time TEDx speaker and has curated two TEDx events in Enniskillen.

Speaking ahead of the launch of ‘Mental Wealth: A Guide to Being Rich by Seeking Enrichment’, she said: “This book means so much to me; it has some of my knowledge and wisdom and ideas around ‘mental wealth’.

“[It also focuses on] why it is so important to look after your mental health all of the time, not just as a reaction to becoming unwell.

“We all experience challenges in our lives and the mental wealth that we create, the tools that we have developed, can all support us in these times to reduce the impact [of mental health issues].

“I often liken mental wealth to a bank vault. When you are consistently working on your wellbeing you are depositing these into the vault, storing the strategies, tools and building resilience, then when you need to dig deeper, if life gets challenging, you withdraw from the vault and this reduce the impact and allow you to recover in a more positive way.”
