Mental Health

A healthy mind contributes to a healthy life. For this reason, we produce mental health resources that are a collaborative wealth of information authored by:

  • People with first-hand experience of mental health issues.
  • People who have used mental health services including treatment and recovery within the mental health system.
  • People who are survivors — who have come out the other side with a desire to help educate others.

Mental health is a huge topic that encompasses many areas and mental illnesses. Worldwide, one in six people are thought to suffer from some form of mental health issue, yet mental health stigmas are still common. Unfortunately, mental health encompasses a number of hidden disabilities and it is therefore vital that we are mindful of our mental health and develop ways to keep our mind healthy.

What is Mental Health?

We hear the term very often but how do we define mental health? Mental health is linked to our psychological and emotional wellbeing. Anyone can develop mental health problems such as anxiety, grief or more serious mental illnesses like OCD, psychosis or schizophrenia. In some cases it would be advisable to seek help from a mental health professional who may recommend treatments such as psychotherapy, CBT and/or medication.

Causes of Mental Illness

Causes of mental illnesses are varied. Some of the most common causes are PTSD, poverty, physical illness and a host of life experiences and environmental factors. Even loneliness can lead to mental health conditions.

Signs of Mental Illness

There are a number of signs that can indicate a mental health condition such as:

  • Becoming withdrawn
  • Feeling overly down or sad
  • Sleeping more or less often than normal
  • Irritability
  • Loss of interest in things previously enjoyed

Types of Mental Illnesses

Many recognisable mental health disorders include:

Mental Health Stigmas

Although people are becoming more comfortable discussing their mental health concerns, there is still a stigma associated with mental illness. People with mental health problems are often confronted by judgemental attitudes and media stereotypes which give a negative impression and exacerbate stigmas surrounding mental health.

Aspects of Mental Health

More must be done to promote positive mental health and support those with a mental illness. Mental Health Awareness Week is one way we can all get involved. There are also other areas of mental health that need to be considered. They play a part in helping people suffering with mental health issues and include:

  • Mental health services
  • Mental health support
  • Mental health disorder prevention
  • Mental health policy

Mental health is undeniably a topic that touches all our lives. The mental health problems that can affect us or our loved ones can lead to drug addiction, alcohol addiction and suicidal ideation.

All Resources provides a number of publications which cover mental health topics and promote discussion on ways to enhance emotional wellbeing.
