Defining Key Terms

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Mental health is the state of balance that individuals establish within themselves and between themselves and their social and physical environment.

Resilience metatheory has taken psychology to its original Greek meaning of ‘the study of the soul,’ where ‘soul refers to the whole integrated being of an individual with one’s transpersonal nature or human spirit as the primary force of the system,’ effectively recognizing the inevitability of interdisciplinarity when tackling complexity. 

Almedom & Glandon, 2007
