The Mental health is defined as a state of being in which the individual is aware of his own abilities and can face the difficulties inherent in life, work productively, demonstrating their skills and being able to contribute something useful to the community or the society. However, this definition is quite subjective, since it is always conditioned by the influence of the cultural differences, beliefs, laws and norms of each region.

When we talk about mental health we refer to the reasoning and correct handling of emotions. This is directly related to the way in which depressions and stress are overcome, preventing the quality of life from deteriorating and making it possible to prevent somatic and affective diseases.

Therefore, mental health constitutes one of the fundamental pillars of optimal development not only physical but psychological of the individual as a human being in all the roles that it represents.

Mental, emotional and physical health
Wellbeing Mental and physical are closely linked, since one usually involves deterioration for the other. For example, a person who is suddenly detected by a pathology can react by isolating himself and presenting severe depression or stress.

Similarly, emotional health cannot be separated from the well-being of the body and mind, because, in the same way, one is a cyclical consequence of the other. When we perceive a strong negative emotion, our body evidences the discomfort with some annoyance that can go from a simple pain of back or head to a more severe upheaval.

The symptoms of the deterioration of health must be treated from the physical point of view, accompanied by therapies of an emotional nature. In this sense, while it is true that advances in science offer effective and necessary medical treatments, it is also necessary to achieve a stable psychological condition, because if it is severely disrupted, the functioning of the organism in one way or another will be diminished.

Certain events can affect our mental health such as going through a situation of intense stress or anguish. As well as losing work for unusual causes, the death of a loved one, the definitive departure of a friend or loved one to another country; have money problems or love breakups, divorce and many other vital events.
