What is mental health?

"Mental health is a state of wellbeing in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community."

What is wellness?

"A state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
