Flourishing and languishing

This project investigates the extent to which populations are flourishing and languishing. One aspect of this project challenges current theoretical paradigms which define flourishing and languishing in terms of positive wellbeing only. We propose a definition of flourishing and languishing in terms of the concurrent experience of wellbeing and mental health and our current investigations show this to be a more useful concept than in current dimensions. A second aspect of the project is to investigate the prevalence and correlates of flourishing and languishing in the Australian population and demonstrate the benefit of people flourishing.
