Abstract

Mental health is not merely an absence of mental illness. It’s also a relationship between an individual and the society that the individual dwells and all the social process and institutions that a society embodies within.

There exist several personal and environmental factors culminating into some form of mental illness. Therefore prevention of these factors helps prevent mental illness or delay their onset for timely intervention. Various public health strategies have genuine implications in day to day life an individual and population at large. The combination of mental health with such public health strategies will have synergistic effect.
