“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
– World Health Organization (1946)
The work of a mental health professional is incomplete if the focus is only on treating the symptoms of a given illness. The word Antidepressant means only that, to not be depressed. By definition, medication alone is an incomplete strategy to achieve full recovery. People who achieve individual wellbeing understand that this is a skill that needs to be learned, developed, and maintained. Positive Psychology promotes unique factors that are designed to help you achieve a fulfilling and rewarding life. By investing in your health, you obtain countless benefits and the potential for long lasting and sustainable results.
Let’s change the conversation from mental illness to mental wellness.
