"What is mental health? How can you work to improve and maintain your mental health if you don’t even know what that means?" Those questions are from an article in Psychology Today. The writer of this article, Nancy S. Buck, PhD, goes on to say, "...when it comes to mental health we can’t even define it let alone take steps to develop or improve it."
In a comprehensive new review published in Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, the effects of “subjective well-being”—a measure of how people evaluate their own lives—on various aspects of physical health was examined. According to lead author Edward Diener, professor of social psychology at the University of Utah, these studies have confirmed, with “almost no doubt,” that happiness really can influence health.”
In this week's program we will discuss why it is necessary to view mental health as important as physical health, and the importance happiness plays in achieving and maintaining good mental health.
