Avoidance of Spiritual Struggles Leads to Poor Mental Health

This article discusses how people who are more spiritual are able to discuss and internalize the "big questions" in life. It relates to our class topic through the dimensions of psychological health, specifically spiritual health, as well as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. In the hierarchy, spirituality is one of the parts of self-actualization and innervates into every other aspect of the hierarchy. People who are spiritual (meaning believing in a higher power such as religion, government, nature, etc) tend to be able to sexually express themselves more, feel protected by the higher power, have a sense of belonging to a community who shares similar beliefs, tends to find a purpose more so they feel more accomplished, and often are more fulfilled in life.


I felt that this article was important to add because it is important to recognize that spiritual health is just as much part of psychological health as emotional, social, and mental health is. 01-27-2017 11:11am
