This was the presentation I did in the yesterday’s program. With the upcoming World Mental Health Day on Oct 10, a lot of people in the next few days will be talking and discussing about mental health but being focused upon mental disorders and their solutions. I wanted to highlight the taken-for-granted aspect of mental health. We seem to be obsessed with just the fixing problems ignoring what is right & working and making it better.

“Psychological science and practice has to be as concerned with strength as with weakness; as interested in building the best things in life as in repairing the worst; and as concerned with making  the lives of normal people fulfilling as with healing pathology”.
(Christopher Peterson, 2008 in The Good Life {psychology today blog})
