Mental hygiene has been variously defined, depending upon the school represented or the scope intended. It is sometimes broadly conceived as including the cure of the •abnormal and diseased mind (psychiatry), as also the development and preservation of a healthy mind, an integrated personality. The stress, however, is always upon the prophylaxis, upon the prevention of maladjustment. "All mental hygiene is directed toward a happy and successful life in conformity with the dictates of personal and higher laws."
