Mental health is an essential part of any citizen's health and well-being. Mental health is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a state of well-being in which every individual realises 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.
