Mental health cannot be a destination. It is a process, a journey. It is just like the way you drive and not where you go. You, me, and everybody else needs to set up this process and keep following it.
Defining mental illness differently-
Mental illness is actually a physical illness of the brain that causes disturbances in thinking, behavior, energy, or emotion making it difficult for the patient to cope with the ordinary demands of life. However, there are researches being conducted to uncover the additional complicated causes of these diseases which can include genetics, brain chemistry, brain structure, experiencing trauma, and/or having another medical condition.
Tree of three things to nurture for a better future-
- Showing individuals respect and acceptance despite their mental conditions.

Now that we have established the background of mental health, let us immediately look towards the more crucial parameter- solutions!
Dealing Mental Health with Yoga & Meditation
Meditation, Yoga & Ayurveda are in themselves substantial ways of healing. On that account, considering this ancient science for mental health is miraculous. Patanjali’s Yogasutra explains that all problems start in the mind due to klesha or inborn mental afflictions. These later manifest in the body and continue to affect the mind.
Yoga for Psychology, Psychiatry, Psychotherapy

Better quality of life is ensured through mental health awareness

The symbiotic outlook of Yoga and Mental Health calls for innovative research to develop enduring synergies for positive mind-body connections. You can experience this practically happening in one of its kind, an International Yoga Conference.
