The world health organisation (WHO) states:
Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.
In WHO’s definition of health contained in its constitution states:
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
The World Foundation of Mental Health (WFMH) founded in 1948 describes its mission as:
Founded in 1948, the mission of our international organization includes:
• The prevention of mental and emotional disorders;
• The proper treatment and care of those with such disorders;
• And the promotion of mental health
This year’s focus is dignity, living life with a mental health problem can lead to many challenges in itself. The word dignity is difficult to define, it has multiple meanings, and yet personally we know what it is and when it isn’t present.
There is of course also many conditions which would come under the banner of mental health.
For our part, Healthy Audio provide home use audio programs for Stress, anxiety and also Insomnia three of the most widely recognised emotional conditions, and yet, even though we experience the effects of Stress and Anxiety we often try to ignore them, but we do so at our peril.
If we continue to ignore the effects of Stress and / or anxiety in our lives we are leaving ourselves open to even more serious emotional and physical conditions.
• Such as M.E
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Coronary Thrombosis: Heart attack
• Skin disorders
• Digestive Disorders and Conditions
• Peptic Ulcer
• Hypertension: High blood pressure
We encourage you to support World Mental Health Day on the 10th October 2015 in any way you feel appropriate.
We also encourage you to look after yourself too. Stress and Anxiety, like all chronic mental health conditions not only affect the individual, it also affects families and loved ones, relationships, friendship, work and study time, recreation and socialising in addition to other areas of your life.
For each Anxiety or Stress download purchased in October Healthy Audio Hypnosis will make a donation to MND the mental health charity.
