We can consider mental health awareness as the hottest topic nowadays. as we lead our day-to-day life we have no choice but to notice this topic being treated and talked about in so many ways and on diverse platforms was it news, social media, or our physical environment. but most of us have a vague or an abstract idea about the topic, we keep coming across the terms ( mental health awareness, mental health issues, mental health disorder…). so what is mental health? and what are the issues that are related to the latter?
Mental health as defined by the W.O.H: a state of being regarding individuals psychological and emotional well being. rephrasing it s the state of being in which the individual realizes, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to find balance in oneself eventually contributing to her/his community. Mental health problems and disorders are a significant health issue in our today’s world. can be identified as diagnosable conditions characterized by changes in thinking, mood, or behavior (or some combination of these) that can cause a person to feel stressed out and impair his or her ability to function. Medical science increasingly recognizes the vital link between a person’s physical health and his or her mental/emotional health. Mind and body are connected as one, each affected by the other, and both are influenced by a person’s genetic inheritance, environment, and experience. Just as the absence of disease does not adequately define physical health, mental health consists of more than the absence of mental disorders. Mental health is best seen as falling along a continuum, which fluctuates over time, and across individuals, as well as within a single individual.
