What are the key differences between Mental Health vs. Emotional Health?

  • Mental health deals with behaviors that relate to the mind or brain. Related problems that develop are typically the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain.
  • There are a few ways that a chemical imbalance can happen in the brain. One way is a natural imbalance of chemicals. This typically happens when mental health conditions run within the family. Another way that a chemical imbalance can occur is via the abuse of mind-altering drugs.
  • Emotional health deals with matters of the heart. The issues that develop tend to occur more often when people have to deal with traumatic or negative life events.
  • Is There a Connection Between Emotional and Mental Health?
  • While it’s true that emotional health vs mental health are two different things, they’re still intertwined. Without mental health treatment, people’s emotions can run wild. Focusing purely on emotional health causes mental disorientation that makes it hard to function normally. Both emotional and mental health treatments have roles in helping people during rehab.

How do you know if you’re struggling with either?

Your mental health is a crucial part of your wellbeing and affects various areas of your day-to-day life. Mental health influences your psychological, emotional, and social needs and how they affect your thoughts and actions. An imbalance of any these elements can cause all types of problems, such as:

  1. Mood swings
  2. Lack of energy or motivation
  3. Insomnia
  4. Excessive sleeping
  5. Under-eating or overeating

How to Tell If Someone Is Struggling Mentally or Emotionally?

  • People often have different symptoms when they struggle with emotional or mental health issues. While it’s possible for people to suffer from both at the same time, one is typically the underlying issue. However, how can they tell the difference?
  • Regarding behavior, people who suffer mentally typically stay quiet and calm in a corner. This makes it harder to understand their problems. People with emotional issues typically make loud moans and heavy sighs.
  • Those who struggle with mental health often appear abnormal or unhealthy to those around them. Thankfully, this type of problem is much easier to notice than in cases where they’re quiet. For emotional problems, people typically have radical changes in mood. In a few seconds, they can go from having depressive to manic behaviors.
