Mental Health is an essential part of your overall health and wellbeing.1 Good mental health means that you are able to recognise your own abilities, adapt to the normal stresses of life, work productively, and contribute to your community.2 Several social, psychological, and biological factors determine the degree of emotional wellbeing you might experience at any given time.2 If a person is engaging in a pattern of behaviour or thinking that is causing them significant distress or is having a negative impact on their life, they may wish to seek professional medical advice to get appropriate support in managing the problem.3 The discipline of neuroscience is key to understanding how our brains work and how we can maintain good mental health, which is key to everything else in our lives. In addition, the research and development process conducted in neuroscience is concerned with providing innovative treatment options that have the potential to help people who are experiencing mental health-related challenges.4
