Like physical health, mental health is a continuum that most people will move up and down at various stages of life. This can be due to individual habits, external circumstances or genetic predisposition.

The three significant areas of the mental health continuum include mental illness (common illnesses include de-pression and anxiety), mental wellness (getting by ok), and flourishing (having an optimal level of wellbeing).

Throughout the world, about one in four people each year will meet the diagnostic criteria for having a mental illness. Almost 50 percent of all people will experience a mental illness in their lifetime.

Like physical health, everyone can take positive steps to not only reduce their likelihood of developing an illness, but also optimise their level of wellbeing.
