What is Mental Health?
Mental Health and Mental Illness are not polar opposites but may be thought of as points on a continuum. Dependent on a personís circumstances, we know that mental health is a state of successful performance of mental function, resulting in productive activities, fulfilling relationships with other people and the ability to adapt and change and cope with adversity. Further, mental health is indispensable to personal well-being, family and interpersonal relationships, and contribution to community or society. It is easy in either families or communities to overlook the value of mental health until problems surface or system changes occur.
