Mental health

Call 000 in an emergency if you feel someone is at risk of harm 

Good mental health is more than just the absence of a mental disorder, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety. A person who is mentally healthy has a state of well-being in which he or she realises his or her own abilities, is able to cope with life’s normal stresses, can work regularly and productively and is also able to make a contribution to the community. Good mental health, therefore, is the foundation for an individual’s and a community’s effective functioning and well-being. Still, being mentally and emotionally healthy doesn’t mean that people never go through hard times or suffer through some painful situations, whether we have a mental disorder or are going through a painful situations, most of us will need some help with our mental health at some time or another.
