mental health   as  an integral and essential component of health, indeed, there is no health without mental health.
Mental health is more than the absence of mental disorders.

The WHO constitution states: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental
and social
well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his
or her own abilities, cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a  contribution to his or her community.

In this positive sense, mental health is the foundation for individual well-being and the effective functioning of a community.


More than 450 million people suffer from mental disorders. (WHO 10years ago)

More than 970 million 1/8 people  suffer  from mental disorder (WHO 2020)

Many more people have mental problems. 
Mental health is determined by socio-economic, biological and environmental factors.


The vulnerability  is not a characteristic of homeless but of person everyone
has his Achilles heel but not  all of them are injured.
