The definition of health is not complete without mental health and is rightly so. Without a sound mind the body ceases to function at its optimum potential, resulting in decreased productivity at work and more importantly, in the family. Mental health problems include a wide spectrum of psychiatric disorders which may range from a persisting headache to major behavioral disturbances and can result from a complex interaction between the brain, the environment and genetics.
A large proportion of the population has experienced a psychiatric disorder at some point in their life without them ever knowing it. Fortunately, the awareness of mental health problems is on the rise. There are more people who opt for treatment of psychiatric illness every day and are benefitted by it.
