What is Mental Health?
What a pleasure to meet you. My name is Jordan and I am currently going through my Masters degree in Counselling Psychology. I am extremely passionate about mental health and decreasing the stigma attached to mental illness within our society today. But what really is mental health?
Mental health can be defined as a person's condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being. To unpack that definition, mental health is how you feel day to day. Mental health and physical health often go hand in hand, often times an individual remains unaware of why their physical health is suffering only to realize that it has to do with an imbalance in their mental wellbeing. I hope to help educate, learn and decrease the stigma through my blog. I would love to hear about you, your story or your journey with a mental illness. Please reach out if you have any thoughts or questions.
