    According to the World Health Organization, mental health is that which includes well-being, independence, self-efficacy between generations, and an individual's emotional and intellectual potential.

    Health is a term used in the event of complete physical, mental and social integrity, and it is not correct to call a person free of diseases, as health includes complete safety of the individual in all respects.

    The importance of mental health

    Mental health affects the individual in terms of his self-esteem and his relationships, and also affects his daily work, either negatively or positively, according to his psychological state.

    When a person's mental health is not good, it affects him physically, weakens mental performance, and pushes him to wrong habits such as addiction. It also affects him in terms of his affliction with many diseases.

    When a person is in good mental health, he will enjoy good physical health and lead a happy and happy life. Good mental health is a major cause of longevity and a lack of disease, as there is ample evidence confirming that a person's emotional capabilities are related to his positive social behaviors such as physical health and stress management. Also, those who are unable to express their feelings find them more inclined to aggressive behaviors and self-destructive behaviors, especially drug abuse, acts of sabotage, and fights with others, this is a result of their poor mental health. (According to research by Richards, Campania and Muse Burke in 2010

    Integration factors for mental health:

    From McDougall's view, the measure of mental health is the integrity and harmony of the personality. The integrity of the personality comes from the emotion of self-esteem, which when it is prevalent in the person.

    Likewise, personality incompleteness is due to the fact that some desires and motives are the effective influence on the personality, which makes it far from the emotion of self-consideration.

    Freud believes that mental health is the result of the integration of three aspects of the psyche, namely:

    The tendencies represented in instinctive desires (the id) represent the biological aspect, meaning that he is responsible for all desires and instincts without regard for society's values ​​or any ethical rules.
    EGO, which is the most moderate personality that accepts behaviors according to the rules of society, is the organizer of the desires of the Id and fulfills them within the framework of societal rules, as it is considered the mediator between (the Id) and the external community and fulfills his desires within the framework of what the reality imposes
    The ego is Super EGO, which is represented in the conscience, which is contradictory to humor in all his actions and is represented in adherence to social and religious rules and ideals, and he controls actions and behaviors wisely and rationally
    To clarify, it can be said that the id is the devil, evil and the animal who seeks to possess all that he desires in order to survive without regard for anything and seeks to be free without deterrence, so that he restricts his ego and fulfills his desires, but in a civilized and socially acceptable form. As for the super Ego, it is that feeling represented by the conscience that makes the soul adhere to values ​​and morals, and it is the ideal part of the personality and unrealistic as it makes the ego achieve what the idiot wants by using defensive tricks.

    Psychological happiness:

    It is a positive feature represented in emotional happiness and the ability of the soul to live a life full of creativity and flexibility in dealing with difficulties and surrounding circumstances, and it is considered one of the best positive features that affect an individual's life.

    It includes concepts based on educational, religious and humanitarian ideas in addition to theoretical ideas from personality psychology and social psychology.

    A normal mental life:

    Mental wellness is unstable because it is related to communication theories, it is the ability to live in a creative manner and achieve flexibility in dealing with the challenges that he faces as these challenges are inevitable in life, so a person who has good mental and psychological health is able to deal with these difficulties and face them with logical and rational solutions without Strain,

    Myers also laid out the five elements of life's tasks (essence or spirituality, work, leisure, friendship and love, and self-direction)

    As for the twelve sub-tasks (feeling worthy, feeling in control, beliefs, emotional awareness and conditioning, coping, solutions and creativity, humor, nutrition, exercise, self-care, stress management, gender identity, and cultural identity) and those tasks are a major component of wellness.

    The moderation of these ingredients promotes healthy work with positivity and flexibility.

    The fact that a person is healthy and in good health from a mental point of view and emotional balance does not make him immune to the difficulties and challenges of life that are difficult to control or control. A person is always in many emotions with the pressures and problems he faces. It is the person who has good mental and mental health who can deal with these circumstances.
