One of the things that differentiate us humans from the animal world is the fact that we can think and use our brain in a more productive manner. But like other parts of the body this organ can also require some care when trouble strikes. Mental health has caught scientists and thinkers imagination for long; but the truth remains that we still understand only parts of the puzzle. As ancient Greeks believed, the healthy mind compliments a healthy body. Modern world lives life at a scorching pace and usually leaves behind those who cannot take it with all the stress while maintaining the delicate emotional and social balance in relationships. So it is imperative that we try and maintain good mental health. Like any equipment, the mind also needs care and continuous use to be useful. Strong relationships and ample mental exercise help to keep the mental abilities alert. This can be achieved also through yoga meditation. The mind can travel in to any realm and yoga helps you keep a reign over the mind. In spite of all care taken, sometimes, the conditions may be too heavy for an individual and the reaction can be instability which can be managed by therapy and medication. Sometimes the prolonged use of a medicine can also make a person of his abilities. Some of these get progressively worse, but others just give a single jolt and leave the individual in a partially or totally incapacitated state. The residual capacities of an individual can be built on to an extent with therapy and patience. Childhood mental disorders are mostly either congenital or due to unhealthy and violent social milieu. Also the unrealistic expectation of a child to perform academically leads to instability. Disorder like autism is gaining recognition only recently. Earlier these children were considered to be hyperactive or retarded both very vague ways to describe the condition.
