New definition of Mental Health

as published in WORLD PSYCHIATRY, official journal of the World Psychiatric Association (WPA)

Mental health is a dynamic state of internal equilibrium which enables individuals to use their abilities in harmony with universal values of society. Basic cognitive and social skills; ability to recognize, express and modulate one’s own emotions, as well as empathize with others; flexibility and ability to cope with adverse life events and function in social roles; and harmonious relationship between body and mind represent important components of mental health which contribute, to varying degrees, to the state of internal equilibrium.

“The values we are referring to are: respect and care for oneself and other living beings; recognition of connectedness between people; respect for the environment; respect for one’s own and others’ freedom.”

This is what we do! If you wish to learn and teach Positive Performance Psychology, elevating this view of mental health, we welcome your participation
