Mental Health

What Is Mental Health?

 

Is there good health without good mental health? If healthy is happy I can’t see how.

Where does belief play into mental health? Can people believe things that aren’t true and be mentally healthy. Isn’t delusional categorized as a mild form of mental illness? Not that today’s psychiatric categories mean much. I’ve met lots of people who were delusional, at least according to my┬ádefinition, who are considered perfectly normal. In fact I’d say that delusional was normal.

I’ve found it to be the case that it’s pretty hard to escape being delusional to some degree. I’ve spent a good deal of time believing things about the world and people that turned out to be way off the mark. We’ll have to discuss this at length and see what we come up with.
