Promoting Positive Mental Health

What is Mental Health?

Mental health is defined by WHO, the World Health Organisation, as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

Mental health problems can affect the way you think, feel and behave. If you have problems with your mental health, you might feel sad, worried, confused, angry, frightened, hopeless, isolated – even ashamed and worthless.

Mental health problems are experienced by people of any age, race, religion or income. Some of the most commonly diagnosed problems are depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias and eating disorders.
