Defining Mental Health
Defining Mental Health
Many Western groups advocate viewing mental health issues from a medical model. Providers of
mental health services and advocates for the mentally ill use this medical model with the intention of
reducing the stigma placed on the individual diagnosed with the mental illness. Yet, consider the
startling finding that, “those who adopted the biomedical and genetic beliefs about mental illness were
most often those who wanted less contact with the mentally ill or thought of them as dangerous and
unpredictable” (Watters, 2010, p. 173). Western conceptualization of mental health and illness has spread
across the globe and impacted how individuals are treated. For example, cultures may have initially
been more tolerant of these behaviors due to factors such as externalized locus of control, beliefs in
traditional healing, spiritual beliefs, and less expressed emotion. (Watters, 2010)

Liberian culture, which is your own culture influences your definitions of mental health. Then explain how
your definition of mental health might differ from that of your selected culture. Finally, describe a
behavior that is considered normal in your culture (the Liberian culture) but would be considered
abnormal in the culture you selected. Support your responses using the Learning Resources and the
