Mental & Emotional Wellbeing
The terms 'mental illness' describes a wide spectrum of mental health and behavioural disorders, which can vary in both severity and duration. The most prevalent mental illnesses are depression, anxiety and substance use disorders.
When it comes to your physical health, you are probably more likely to consider things like your fitness level, your digestion, heart, lungs and how you physically feel on a regular basis. Mental or emotional however health refers to your overall psychological well-being. This includes the way you feel about yourself, the quality of your relationships, and your ability to manage your feelings and deal with difficulties. Good mental health is not just the absence of mental health problems.
Anyone can suffer from mental or emotional health problems—and over a lifetime most of us will. This year alone, about two in five of us will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. And mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder, are one of the most common causes of hospitalization in the Australia.
Despite how common mental health problems are, many of us make no effort to improve our situation. We ignore the emotional messages that tell us something is wrong and try toughing it out by distracting ourselves or self-medicating with alcohol, drugs, and other destructive behaviours. We bottle things up in the hope that others don't notice. But our emotional issues always affect those around us, especially when we erupt in rage or despair at the sense of hopelessness and helplessness we feel.
Our reluctance to address our mental health needs stems from a variety of reasons.
