what is health education

Next

The word health means different things to different people, depending on the situation. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Most people accept that health can be divided into two broad aspects -

1. Physical healthy,

2. Mental health.

Physical health-

 For humans, physical health means a good body health, which is healthy because of regular physical activity (exercise), good nutrition. Whenever people about health mostly people talk about physical health. Physical health has been the basis for active living campaigns and the many nutrition drives that have swept the industrialized world.

Mental health-

A person who enjoys good mental health does not have a mental disorder. People have always found it easier to explain what mental illness is, rather than mental health. Most people agree that mental health refers to the "absence of mental illness".

Health Education-

                           People with lower levels of education generally have a higher risk of experiencing poorer health. Their levels of stress will most likely be higher, compared to people with higher academic qualifications. A person with a high level of education will probably have greater self-esteem. That’s why education is very important for everyone.

Health education is a social science that draws from the biological, environmental, psychological, physical and medical sciences to promote health and prevent disease, disability and premature death through education-driven voluntary behaviour change activities.

The purpose of health education is to positively influence the health behaviour of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health.
