Mental Health


Modern science has established the effect that a person’s physical appearance can have over her/his mental state. The reverse also holds equally true; the mental well being of a person profoundly influences each and every aspect of her/his life. That makes a sound mental health so very critical for our over all well being. There is not any standard ‘official’ definition for mental health (as per the WHO). It depends on the local cultural specificities, professional atmospheres, and a wide range of subjective assessments as to how we will define mental health. However, the term mental health will always include a person’s capability in terms of enjoying life, procuring the proper balance between various aspects of life, and the like.
