Mental health is the combination of our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. How we think, feel and act is affected by it. Mental health plays a key role in our day to day life as it is reflected in our action. To keep one’s mind in a good condition is important for oneself and as well as for the society. People with mental health problems must be treated as quickly as possible.
Positive mental health allows people to work with their utmost potential, deal with stress effectively, and work productively which is a plus point for the society overall development.
According to Medilexicon's medical dictionary, mental health is "emotional, behavioural, and social maturity or normality; the absence of a mental or behavioural disorder; a state of psychological well-being in which one has achieved a satisfactory integration of one's instinctual drives acceptable to both oneself and one's social milieu; an appropriate balance of love, work, and leisure pursuits".
According to WHO (World Health Organization), mental health is "a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community". WHO stresses that mental health "is not just the absence of mental disorder".
