A mental state is a state of mind that a person is in. There are many mental states of mind that a person can have: love, hate, pleasure and pain, and attitudes such as: believing that, conceiving that, hoping and fearing that, and so on.
This module looks at mental health, what is means for a person, and what can affect it – positively or negatively. We also look at ways of enhancing mental health to help young people to get the most out of their lives.
