Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, our daily lives have changed in almost every aspect. For many people, the period of quarantine and subsequent restrictions have become the cause of increased emotional tension. Fear of isolation and viral contamination puts our mental health at greater risk than ever before.
What is Mental Health – Definition
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “health is not only the absence of disease or disability, but also the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”. However, it is difficult to formulate an unequivocal, universal definition of mental health. It will vary depending on the location in the world and the surrounding culture. The most important thing, however, is to emphasize that mental health does not only mean freedom from specific diseases, but most of all maintaining well-being.
