Mental health is a level of psychological well-being when a person’s emotions and behaviors are functioning at a satisfactory level. In other words, it is the absence of a mental illness.

 

 

A mental illness or mental disorder is a behavioral or mental pattern that causes significant distress or impairment of personal functioning. There are many different mental disorders, with different presentations. Mental disorders are usually defined by a combination of how a person behaves, feels, interacts with others, perceives, or thinks. There are many effective treatments for mental disorders and ways to alleviate the suffering caused by them. (World Health Organization)
