What Is The Difference Between Mental Health And Mental Illness?

Sometimes the answer is clear, but often it is not that clear how one differs from the other.

Positive mental health means healthy emotional, psychiatrical and social status. Emotional health is being contented with personal life and having positive emotions. Psychiatric health is having self-acceptance, personal goals, personal advancement, and autonomy. Social health means social acceptance, social contribution, and social coherence.

Mental illness often causes physical symptoms

Mental illnesses are often hidden for a long time, even for those who affected. The vast majority of people who have anxiety, depression, or panic disorder believe that they are physically ill.
