Psychological describes something affecting or arising in the mind. Something that is related to the mental and emotional state of a person. So, someone who is in good mental health is at a level of psychological well-being, and they are functioning at a satisfactory level emotionally.

It’s interesting though, because what exactly is a “satisfactory level”? Right? A lot of this kind of psychological health is also cultural. With the heart or liver or other body part, doctors can easily say if we are healthy or not. However, with our psychological health, it is much more difficult don’t you agree? It is so subjective, who decides what level of happiness and life satisfaction is enough or not enough to say that someone is in good psychological health??

Hmmm, it’s been a bit of a deep topic this month!
