What is good mental health ?
Humour and introspection and good role models are part of the essence of good mental health. If we look at the diagnostic manual for describing 'bad' mental health, we see that anything other than a robot must be unhealthy. If we look around and search for information on good mental health, we find a plethora of information, much of it designed to help the 'authority' make a few bucks.
So, what do we trust as good mental health ?
I happen to be lucky, as I have had a very adventurous life with some wonderful people. What I thank God for is mostly my children and my friends. What I ask God for is mostly that we can all be safe and happy. No riches, no material things, just good old family friends and fun.
It seems important to our mental health that :-
1. We like ourselves
2. We like (some) others
3. We have something we value to do.
