The Mind Matters Show | Episode 3 | Mental Health vs Mental Illness  

When we ask the question what is mental health? The common answer is its depression, its anxiety. No, they are mental illnesses.

Everyone has a mental health just like everyone has a physical health. If we don't implement the right actions, put the right coping strategies in place and use different support networks, it can increase our chances of experiencing mental ill-health. I believe if individuals understand that they have a mental health they will be a lot more pro-active in looking after and managing it.
