Mental health is a “state of well-being in which we are able to develop our unique potential, cope with the stressors of life, work productively and fruitfully, build strong, positive relationships and make a contribution to our community” (adapted from WHO 2005).

WHO defines: “health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”, and states that “there is no health without mental health.”

Mental health is the foundation for well-being and effective functioning for individuals and for communities.
