"Mental health is an individual and personal matter. It involves a living human organism or, more precisely, the condition of an individual human mind. A social environment or culture may be conducive either to sickness or health, but the quality produced is characteristic only of a person; therefore, it is improper to speak of a "sick society" or a "sick community." In speaking of a person's mental health, it is advisable to distinguish between attributes and actions. The individual may be classified as more or less healthy in a long-term view of his behavior or, in other words, according to his enduring attributes. Or, his actions may be regarded as more or less healthy--that is, appropriate--from the viewpoint of single, immediate, short-term situation. Standards of mentally healthy, or normal, behavior vary with the time, place, culture, and expectations of the social group. In short, different peoples have different standards. Mental health is one of many human values; it should not be regarded as the ultimate good in itself. No completely acceptable, all-inclusive concept exists for physical health or physical illness, and, likewise, none exists for mental health or mental illness. A national program against mental illness and for mental health does not depend on acceptance of a single definition and need not await it. Many scientific investigators have thought about the psychological content of positive mental health. A review of their contributions reveals six major approaches to the subject: a. Attitudes of the individual toward himself; b. Degree to which person realizes his potentialities through action; c. Unification of function in the individual's personality; d. Individual's degree of independence of social influences; e. How the individual sees the world around him; and f. Ability to take life as it comes and master it. One value in American culture compatible with most approaches to a definition of positive mental health appears to be this: An individual should be able to stand on his own two feet without making undue demands or impositions on others. The need for more intensive scientific research in mental health is underscored"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

Transforming hate to love : an outcome study of the Peper Harow treatment process for adolescents by Melvyn Rose ( )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Peper Harow residential community was founded in 1970 and gained international repute for its work with disturbed adolescents. For over 20 years this remarkable establishment provided a therapeutic environment for teenagers who had often suffered appalling abuse, and yet for whom the state's only remedial provision until then had been in the punitive form of the approved schools. In Transforming Hate to Love , Melvyn Rose describes how Peper Harow mananged rather than punished disruptive behaviour. Through the words of ex-residents the reader is given a unique view of the effectiveness of the treatment process - its successes and its failures. The overwhelmingly positive outcome of Rose's interviews with ex-residents of Peper Harow indicated that the area reflects an incomplete view of the causes of criminality among young people. Peper Harow's success demonstrated to both the general and specialist reader how a psychodynamic approach to adolescent delinquency, and its emotional source could benefit society as a whole
