One significant learning experience is the first theory class, this class
went over the definition of mental illness, and wellness. This is a
significant learning experience since you need to know the definition
of these terms to fully understand the meaning beyond the definition.
I then opened my Mental Health textbook in which elaborated on
these two terms.

MEANINGFUL.
Mental wellness is the state of being healthy, happy and free from

want. People who achieve this are able to cope with stresses in
life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to contribute
to her community.
Nurses must understand that patients and people who are living with
a mental illness are able to experience mental wellness. From my
understanding, the state of well-being is subjective and is different
for each individual. Therefore it is related with ones self-identity,
and relationships to the world and others.

Good understands competency in theory and in scenarios and


nursing practice.
I rated this competency as good since I have put this theory in action
by trying to balance all aspect of my life, and trying to achieve health
wellness. I have yet to help another to reach this goal. I understand
that health wellness is something that is attainable for all individuals
even those who have a mental illness. That these two terms are not
separate from each other, but can exist with having one or the other.
By reading my textbook, and attending the Mental Health class
lectures I was able to achieve this competency.

DESCRIBE HOW YOU


WILL APPLY THIS
LEARNING IN YOUR
CURRENT AND
FUTURE NURSING
PRACTICE

I will apply this in my future practice as I will myself continue to


practice, and try to achieve mental wellness by balancing all aspects
in my life. This relates to my future practice, as it will give me the
opportunity to provide the best care to my future patients. No nurse
is able to give excellent care when they themselves are not healthy.
Also, my knowledge of these terms, and state of health may provide
insight to my patients when undergoing stress. I may not determine
an individuals mental wellness, but I can teach coping strategies,
which enables patients to improve an aspect of their health.
