The second edition of 'Be A More Resilient You!' - a workbook to help you strengthen your resilience - is available now.
'Be A More Resilient You!' challenges the thought that your wellbeing is all about your mind; and that if things go wrong, the solution lies only in science, medicine and therapy.
Your mental wellbeing is affected by your environment too. In the right environment, you thrive. In more challenging environments, you struggle.
This different way of thinking opens up a world of new and easier possibilities. There’s so much that you and others around you can do to help you live in an environment that suits you better. All this takes is some self-reflection and desire on your part. For those who can support you, it just takes a willingness to help and an ability to listen. No specialist medical or therapeutic skills are required.
‘Be A More Resilient You!’ gives you some straightforward, practical steps that you can take to manage your wellbeing, strengthen your resilience and have mentally healthy conversations with others to get their support.
Let Evenhood change your mind about mental wellbeing.

About Jonathan Phelan
Jonathan is the author of “The Art of the Mentally Healthy Conversation” which tells the story of how Jonathan learned to manage the challenge of a mental health condition following a child bereavement. The book helps the reader discover how to have mentally healthy conversations, which are more likely to result in support, rather than stigma. It also promotes the benefits of workplaces, universities and schools nurturing a culture in which it is normal for people to talk about their mental health and to offer mutual support for wellbeing and resilience.
Jonathan has held a senior leadership position in a large financial services organisation since 2004, with a long-term career in law, law enforcement and consumer protection. When he went through the trauma of a child bereavement he gained an insight into the obstacles people face when they have mental wellbeing challenges. More importantly he learned how to overcome those obstacles by improving the way we talk about our wellbeing and resilience.
Through his talks, workshops and book Jonathan shares his personal story. Using the drama of how mental health has been portrayed in film, and his own particular take on how our brains process information, Jonathan guides the listener to discover more effective ways to talk about mental wellbeing. Jonathan also promotes the concept of mutual support for wellbeing; based on the belief that we should all aim to make it normal for people to talk about their mental wellbeing, just as we are already willing to talk about physical wellbeing.
