ABSTRACT

‘Emotional health’ is an emerging concept in the field of clinical and health psychology that focuses on the overall wellbeing of the person. However the concept of Emotional health, in itself, has not been much explored as most of the researches have focused on Mental Health and have presented strong emotional basis as that without which mental health is unattainable. This article explores Emotional health, in relation to Mental health, with an explanation of both, seeking to delineate the differences and lay emphasis on a perspective that understands the importance of Emotional health for a holistic well being. Thus this article intends to  contribute in terms of understanding  the concept of Emotional health, not merely as a sub domain in the field of mental health, but a perspective in itself towards overall well being of persons.
