It is all too commonplace not to be mentally ill but to be stuck and languishing in life. Positive mental health is presence: the presence of positive emotion, the presence of engagement, the presence of meaning, the presence of good relationships, and the presence of accomplishment. Being in a state of mental health is not merely being disorder free; rather it is the presence of flourishing.
