The term 'mental health' means different things to different people but in essence it's all about how we think, feel and behave. Good mental health is when people are able to function in society, have fulfilling relationships with other people, cope with change and loss and meet the demands of everyday life. When people experience mental health problems, they often find that they have difficulties in some or all of these areas.
