Our psychological, emotional, and social well-being are all a part of mental health. It has an impact on the way we think, feel, and act. It also influences how we deal with stress, interact with others, and make decisions. Mental health is vital at all stages of life, including childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.

Mental health, according to the World Health Organization, is " more than just the absence of mental disorders or disabilities. Peak mental health entails not only preventing active mental illnesses but also maintaining overall well-being and happiness."

WHO also focuses importance on the need of protecting and repairing mental health on an individual level, as well as in many groups and societies around the world.

If you have mental health difficulties, your thoughts, emotions, and behaviour may be altered over the years and affect your functioning. Many factors play a role in mental illness, including:

  • Genes and brain chemistry are examples of biological influences.
  • Trauma or abuse are examples of life experiences.
  • Pre-existing mental health issues in the family.

Everyone, regardless of age, sex, income, or race, is at risk of acquiring a mental health issue.

Mental diseases are one of the top causes of death in the United States and most of the developed world. A person's mental health can be influenced by social and socio-economic situations, biological variables, and lifestyle choices. A high percentage of people who have a mental health illness have many conditions at the same time.

It is crucial to remember that mental well-being is dependent on a fine balance of many factors and various aspects of life.

People with good mental health can:

  • Realize their true potential
  • Become resilient in dealing with life s stresses
  • Contribute meaningfully to their communities

The following are some suggestions for maintaining good mental health:

  • If you require expert assistance, see an online therapist.
  • Making connections with other people
  • Keeping a positive attitude
  • Getting some exercise and assisting others
  • Getting adequate rest
  • Increasing coping abilities

There are several approaches to dealing with mental health issues. Treatment is very personalized, and what worked for one individual may not work for the other. Some techniques or treatments work better when used in combination with others. At different points in their lives, a person with a severe mental illness might choose from a variety of options. Online therapy is as effective as traditional therapy and an individual must work closely with the online therapist who can assist them in identifying their requirements and providing appropriate treatment through online counselling.
