In this course, Public health and mental health promotion, you will examine public health from a mental health perspective, beginning with an exploration of the relationship between public health and mental health.
IntroductionThe term public health has two meanings: (a) dealing with threats to the public; (b) in the epidemiological context, measuring disease and planning strategies to prevent illness. If practitioners are serious about promoting mental health, they also need to consider and tackle the discrimination and exclusion encountered by people who experience mental distress. In this way, they also start to address unseen mental health problems and promote well-being. Mental health promotion is concerned with achieving positive mental health and quality of life.
