What is Mental Health
‘A state of wellbeing in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and is able to make a contribution to her or his community’
Poor mental health has substantial personal and economic impacts across the European Union, and associated stigma or discrimination can exacerbate these impacts. Mental illnesses can be described as health conditions involving changes in emotion, thinking or behavior (or a combination of these), and are associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities. Mental illness can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, social status, religion or sexual orientation.
