When we hear the words "mental health," most of us think of mental illness. Professionals, researchers and theoreticians share this confusion and research literature abounds with different conceptualizations and definitions of mental health. This session explores current definitions and evidence to clarify what mental health is. A measure is introduced along with evidence and feedback from Canadian career development practitioners.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Current definitions of mental health and mental illness    
  • Common elements of contemporary definitions of mental health    
  • An evidence-based framework for developing a current measure
