Deviation from Ideal Mental Health

Deviation from ideal mental health is a definition of abnormality, which suggests that abnormal behaviour should be defined by the absence of particular (ideal) characteristics. Jahoda proposed six principles of ideal mental health, including having a positive view of yourself and being resistant to stress. Therefore, if an individual does not demonstrate Jahoda’s criteria, they would be classified as abnormal.
