MENTAL ILLNESS: Health has always remained the primary concerns of human society. The promotion of health and the eradication of illness is are goals of every human institution. The World Health Organization (WHO) was instituted as an international platform to promote cooperation among countries in the promotion of health. The WHO defines health as‖ Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity‖ (WHO, 1998).
