© THE DOVE SERVICE What is mental ill health? The definition of ‘mental ill health’ or ‘mental health problems’ covers a very wide spectrum, from the worries and grief we all experience as part of everyday life to the most bleak, suicidal depression or clinical diagnosis of a mental health illness. Everybody responds differently to the stresses and strains of modern life and it is common to describe ourselves as ‘depressed’, ‘stressed’ or ‘anxious’ at times. For some, these feelings can become serious enough to make it difficult to carry on with everyday life.
© THE DOVE SERVICE What is good mental health? Good mental health is characterised by a person’s ability to fulfil a number of key functions and activities such as: The ability to learn The ability to feel, express and manage a range of positive and negative emotions The ability to form and maintain good relationships with others The ability to cope with and manage change and uncertainty
© THE DOVE SERVICE Recognising triggers, signs and symptoms It will be helpful if we all can identify clues when all is not well. It’s obvious if someone is feeling under the weather due to a heavy cold or a foot injury. It will not be so obvious to recognise when we are experiencing mental ill health. Would we be able to recognise triggers, signs and symptoms in ourselves and those around us?
