Good mental health is defined as ‘a state of well-being,’ where each individual realises his or her own potential, is able to cope with stress associated with daily life and who can work productively.
But to have good mental health, we must first be mentally aware. Mental health must be centred around our physical, mental and social well-being. When we have good mental health, we will maintain good physical health. Without mental health awareness, we can never have full mental health. We must be aware and continue to make ourselves aware of the importance of mental health.
A brain injury that directly affects the brain chemistry can contribute to mental illness and can be the reason we deal with generalised anxiety disorder. For those who deal with a brain injury, it is even more important they seek help with their emotions.
When we consciously continue to make ourselves aware of mental health and we take care of any issues relating to mental health, mental health awareness becomes easier.
