McFadden 1 Eneyda McFadden Professor Floridia English 102 1/14/19 The Importance of Mental Health In society, many people suffer from mental and behavioral health issues. The most important element in life is people's mental health and behaviors that occur inside the individual's body and start within the brain. Human beings should want to understand the reasons why somebody behaves or functions in a certain way. The Psychology of people is very important because it is necessary to understand why a particular action occurred. I think some individuals study psychology for many important reasons. I believe their main purpose is to determine a more effective theory to develop improvements in the brain. People need this knowledge to properly understand how the mind processes. This information can help everyone in situations such as making decisions, mental issues, education, work, culture, nature, relationships, and therapy. Mental health and behavior health helps people understand how the body or mind operate together. Most importantly, psychology is necessary because it is the biology of all living things. Many people suffer from mental and behavioral problems because they are not receiving proper treatment. In the short play "Equus" by Peter Schaffer, a young boy name Alan Strang who is suffering and struggling with mental health problems. Alan becomes very affected by his experience with his horses. Alan's parent Frank and Hester can no longer handle their son, so they bring him to psychologist by the name of Martin Dysart for professional help or guidance. The parents desire that Doctor Dysart finds a cure to remove or improve Alans pain, mental, and behavior. Eventually, Alan feels like his parents are responsible for his actions and behaviors. Alan is receiving treatment to understand how his body and mind is affected by his mental and behavioral health. In the drama film "Dead Poets Society" directed by Peter Weir,
