Facts: Mental Illness and Mental Health are not one in the same. Mental illness is a condition and mental health is state of being. Consider this.

Mental illness is a disorder/disease that effects thinking, mood, and behavior. Mental health is a person’s condition regarding psychological (mental) and emotional well-being. Mental illness is what many think of when mental health is mentioned. They shy away from addressing mental health because they don’t see their issues as evidence of a disorder nor do they want them to be evidence of such!
