People usually just want to feel good, like when they are lying on the beach, listening to birds in the forest, playing with kids or helping someone. Feel good includes both physical and mental health.

To have good physical health but a compromised mental status does not allow us to fully benefit from the physical health and vice-versa. The two are tightly interwoven and flow into each other. It is impossible to separate them. Fortunately, we can control your physical and mental health to a great degree, changing it permanently or just temporarily adjusting to conditions we cannot change today. Be mindful of enjoying life each day, changing what we can each day for the better. This is what life is for.

Doctors are mostly involved with physical health, and will use all tools possible to help restore and maintain it, but mental health is equally important. In reality, they are two sides of the same coin.
