What is Mental Health?


we all have mental health it is just as important as physical health it is not only about

mental illness or mental disorders this is just one part of a bigger

picture, it’s best to think about mental health as being on a continuum rather

than people being either mentally ill or mentally well we are all on the continuum

and we move up and down according to factors such as our genetic makeup

and upbringing our life circumstances and the stresses we are

under but one end of the continuum we have mental disorders like depression or

anxiety and at the other end we have states of positive mental health when we’re thriving

the contempt and fulfilled mental health interventions aim to move people up

the continuum so that they’re able to reach their full potential and live satisfying lives.
