What is mental hygiene? It's a movement...committed to actions that aim to close the gap for mental disorders. Mental hygiene is the science of maintaining mental health and preventing the development of psychosis, neurosis, or other mental disorders.
Why are we talking about this? There is evidence suggesting that graduate students were more than six times as likely to experience depression and anxiety compared to the general national population.
