Mental Health and Mental Illness

What is mental health?

It is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being in which an individual can cope with the normal stresses of life. It is not necessarily the absence of a disease or infirmity.

What is mental illness?

Recovery

In mental health, recovery is a unique process for each individual. It involves the development of new meaning and purposes in one’s life as a person moves beyond the sometimes catastrophic effects of mental illness.  With the recovery process, the person realizes that it is possible to live a happy life, despite the limitations that come with mental illness.
