Mental Health through Teacher Education

by E. T. McSwain & L. D. Haskew - 1955

Mental health is the result of living and learning. It is a personal way of appraising one's self and others with respect to personal goals and environmental situations. Students may examine in a mental-hygiene course the various factors which promote or impair development of good mental health. However, the quality of mental health possessed by each prospective teacher is influenced by the values, attitudes, and feelings which exist in his "under-the-skin" living. Wholesome mental health is learned and is lived to the degree that students experience it. The sustaining roots of personal health are within the values, thoughts, and actions of individuals.
