What is Mental Health Promotions

I am often asked what does does SUPER CRO actually do. I believe the following is what SUPER CRO does with many of the projects members create when they work together to support each others ideas and projects.

Mental Health Promotion

Mental health is more than the absence of disease. Everyone has a state of mental health, and this can change across the lifespan. Not having a mental illness, does not guarantee good mental health. Similarly, having a mental illness, does not guarantee poor mental health. It includes life satisfaction, self-acceptance, sense of purpose, identity, feeling connected and belonging, empowerment, and resilience, which is the ability to bounce back after set-backs.

The World Health Organization defines mental health as:

“A state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”

Most people think about mental illness when they hear “mental health”. For clarification, many use the term “mental well-being” or “flourishing” instead.
