Mental Heath

Mental Heath

Mental heath issues account for nearly a quarter of the burden of poor health in the United Kingdom and its prevalence is rising (WHO 2008). Mental health problems are as widespread as heart problems and 3 times as common as cancer.

Mental health is usually influenced by a number of factors such as social, personal, economic and environmental factors. It can be looked at most usefully as being a continuum of experience from well-being to a serious and incapacitating long-term illness.

Mental health issues include numerous experiences: some issues might be rather mild or moderate, while some could take on a much more severe form, impacting a person’s capacity to manage thier day-to-day living. Mental health issues have an impact on our feelings and thoughts and alter the way we understand the world. Some feelings related to mental illness are debilitating levels of sadness, anxiety, despondency or low self-confidence. Mental health issues include stress and anxiety, obsessions, phobic disorders, depressive disorders, bi-polar disorder, eating disorders and schizophrenia. Mental health problems can present in a multitude of ways, dependent upon the person, and alterations in people’s mood and personality can offer important indicators, although obviously it’s not feasible to make this type of assessment when confronted with an individual the very first time.

Mental well-being might actually be fundamental for all health and fitness, simply because the way you think and feel has such a powerful effect on your overall physical health.
