What is Mental Health & How can Mercy Behavioral Help
Mental health is the psychological state of an individual functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment.
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, mental health involves emotional, psychological, and social well-being.
In other words, it affects our thoughts, feelings, and actions.
Mental Health 101 and Mercy Behavioral Center.
A positive mental health helps us realize our full potential, cope with stresses of life, work productively, and make meaningful contributions to our community (US Department of Health and Human Services). Thus, without a positive mental health, we can suffer in different areas of our lives, such stress-management, relationships with family/friends/others, as well as decision-making.
A positive mental health is very important. However, many people tend to underestimate the value of positive mental health. Without a positive mental health, we struggle to get through everyday tasks. We may be unproductive and therefore unhappy.
In addition, studies have shown a correlation between negative mental health and physical illness. For this reason, Mercy Behavioral Center finds a positive mental health to be a priority as a positive mental health is likely to be key to our happiness and our health.
Through the assistance of Flora Pazos’ cognitive behavioral therapy technique, we have helped many patients regain their positive mental health. We encourage anyone who would like help to reach out to us.
