the degree to which you feel emotionally secure and relaxed in everyday life Mental Health definition:
the psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an example of bad emotional health. The definition of OCD is an anxiety disorder characterized by unreasonable thoughts and fears (obsessions) that lead you to do repetitive behaviors (compulsions). With obsessive-compulsive disorder, you may realize that your obsessions aren't reasonable, and you may try to ignore them or stop them. But that only increases your distress and anxiety. Ultimately, you feel driven to perform compulsive acts in an effort to ease your stressful feelings.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder often centers around themes, such as a fear of getting contaminated by germs. To ease your contamination fears, you may compulsively wash your hands until they're sore and chapped. Despite your efforts, thoughts of obsessive-compulsive behavior keep coming back. This leads to more ritualistic behavior — and a vicious cycle that's characteristic of obsessive-compulsive disorder. In Fiction Thank You For Watching

All types of people have mental health and can not help with who they are. With that you should not make fun of someone who may have a mental illness, because you do not know what that person is like. Mental and Emotional Health
by: Schuyler Lauder Statistics In the novel Compulsion by Heidi Ayarbe, Jake Martin is obsessed with prime numbers. After an accident that happened many years ago, he believes if the numbers add up right good things will happen. If he does not add the numbers right nothing will go the way he wants it. His routines can not be altered as well. To Jake everything must go exactly as planned. Today has to be perfect. Magic. I look at the clock. 10:14 AM.

Ten fourteen. One plus one is two plus four is six plus ten is sixteen minus one is fifteen minus two is thirteen. OK.

I turn from the clock and walk into the hallway. "Ready."

Saturday will be the third state soccer champion-ship in a row for Jake Martin. Three. A good number. Prime.
