Understanding what Mental Health is will be significant and according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Mental health is the foundation for the well-being and effective functioning of individuals. It is more than the absence of a mental disorder. Mental health is the ability to think and learn, and the ability to understand and live with one’s emotions and the reactions of others.

It is a state of balance within a person and between a person and the environment. Physical, psychological, social, cultural, spiritual and other interrelated factors participate in producing this balance. The inseparable links between mental and physical health have been demonstrated.
