Diversity Today - What is Mental Health?
Disability equality... Mental health
Everyone has a mental health. It refers to someone’s mental well-being, whether it is ‘high’ or ‘low’. Someone with a mental health impairment cannot always maintain a ‘good’ mental health.
Mental health problems can, at first, appear very subtle but then develop into something more serious - working their way into many life situations. They can be devastating, destroying individuals' effective functioning in life, as well as affecting their families and the people surrounding them.
One in four people will be affected by mental ill health in the course of their life (Source: Mind).
