Mental Health Information

Mental health refers to a broad array of activities directly or indirectly related to the mental well-being component included in the World Health Organization’s definition of health: "A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease". It is related to the promotion of well-being, the prevention of mental disorders, and the treatment and rehabilitation of people affected by mental disorders.
