Mental health is an important part of a person's overall wellbeing
Developing a healthy mind is just as important for our overall health as our physical condition, with stress, anxiety and our internal feelings being major factors that can change how we perceive ourselves and the world around us.
A study by mentalhealth.org in 2016 indicated that nearly half (43.4%) of adults interviewed in the UK thought that they may have had a diagnosable mental health condition at some point in their life (35.2% of men and 51.2% of women), but that only a fifth of these men and a third of these women received an actual diagnosis?*
This could be due to the populations changing lifestyle as well as the social pressures that many of us now feel which can lead to a number of the most common disorders indicated during the study, including anxiety, depression, panic disorders and OCD.
