Hi everyone. I'm Priya Cima. Welcome to cheerful.com.

I'm here to talk to you a little bit about mental health and the terminology or the phrase good mental health. In today's world, international health organizations across the globe have decided and have acknowledged the fact that people's mental health and well-being is so important, especially as we have stress and anxiety on the rise.

It's important for us to understand what good mental health actually means. The term good mental health refers to the emotional, psychological, and social well-being of an individual, and how they actually manage the stresses in their life. So good mental health is really about the behavior that translates from the emotions and thoughts that they feel.

So, what does that mean? Good mental health is about acknowledging and accepting the fact that a person person can feel fear, loss, pain, any of the negative emotions, so called negative emotions, as well as the positive emotions like happiness, joy, and peace. So, it's about really allowing a person to go through the spectrum of emotions, acknowledging them, accepting them, and then learning how to manage the behaviors that come out of them in an effective and healthy manner.

And that is good mental health. Thank you.
