Mental Health

Mental health is a term which refers to a series of process that contains thoughts and ideas, communication skills, learning, emotional development, self-confidence etc.  that continues from birth to death. If the web of these series has :

  • Balance
  • Compatibility
  • Satisfaction

then the person is considered mentally healthy. Freud thinks there are two factors to consider a person mentally healthy ;

  • To work and to love

A person’s mental health is also affected by his/her genetics and social experiences. It is not easy to diagnose a mental illness as it is to diagnose say, diabetes. Because even if in the same society, culture has a significant effect. This is why psychology has been developed later than traditional medicine.

 

A mentally unhealthy person carries characteristics such as incompatibility in emotions and behaviors, excessive and inappropriate actions. A healthy person may have these characteristics too but to be considered mentally unhealthy, it needs to be repeated and/or consistent and affect his/her relations, working performance.

  • Kids and teenagers
