I asked a range of different people, from adults to students, female to male, to explain what they thought mental health meant. Initially each person went into depth about what that phrase meant to them, and why it is important. I wrapped up the interview by asking each person to put mental health into one word. This was a difficult task for many, but it is interesting to hear the differences between each person’s word, and what was produced from narrowing it down. The video shows how the definition of mental health is different for every person, despite varying definitions, we all comprehend the importance of mental health in our daily lives. I want people who see this video to recognize that the definition of mental health falls under a wide scope, but that its importance is universal.
