Mental health and mental illness raise public interest for a variety of reasons. The appeal of well-being, or the complexity of the human experience, promote interest in mental life and its turmoil. The first part of the text addresses some controversial issues and includes aspects related to the destabilization of mental health. The brain and the mind, the diagnosis and classification of mental illnesses, the concepts of vulnerability and resilience are the subject of particular attention. The second part of the text emphasizes the concept of positive mental health and tries to identify some of its individual and social determinants. Oscillating between an individualistic perspective and a more contextual orientation, this second part operates a movement from negative to positive, privileging a public health perspective applied to mental health. The epilogue summarizes what seems to be most important in terms of prevention and promotion of mental health for all.
