This lesson introduces you to mental health in the framework of public health. It briefly presents mental health and mental illness concepts from a biopsychosocial model, the determinants of mental health and mental illness in the context of mental health promotion, as well as describe the burden of mental health problems in the world and in the Philippines. Common misconceptions about mental illness are also discussed in the online forum. In the end, the module clarifies these concepts by defining common terms that are used during the entire course which we hope will shift your paradigm of mental health.
