About Mental Health

    • Mental health is not just the absence of mental illness. It is defined 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 his or her community. A person struggling with his or her behavioural health may face stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief, addiction, ADHD, or learning disabilities, mood disorders, or other psychological concerns.
    • Evidence from the World Health Organization suggests that nearly half of the world’s population are affected by mental illness with an impact on their self-esteem, relationships and ability to function in everyday life. An individual’s emotional health can also impact physical health and poor mental health can lead to problems such as substance abuse.Maintaining good mental health is therefore crucial to living a long and healthy life.
    • Keynotes on mental health can help audiences identify the consequences of poor mental health, and can help people get rid of the prejudice that surrounds this topic. Keynote speakers are able to captivate and inform audiences, while combining humour with important topics.
