  Mental Health has been considered as an important dimension of human health since the origin of Homo sapiens. Other dimensions such as physical, social and economic factors have also an influence on human health [1]. Mental health refers to fluid contributions of culture, religion, and socio-economic concerns; a psychological conceptualization will still recognize some basic ingredients of mental health such as presence of mental fitness, availability (both real and perceived) of certain qualities, competencies, resources, that are potentially available to mobilize as their need arises “and not merely the absence of abnormal behavior”. According to Henderson [2], mental health signifies the operandi of an individual to pursue reasonable, purposeful goals; use his capacities and talents fruitfully.
