Deutsch: Gesundheit
Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living organism. In humans, it is the general condition of a person's mind and body, usually meaning to be free from illness, injury or pain (as in "good health" or "healthy").

In the field of psychology, "health" refers to the overall well-being of an individual, including their physical, emotional, and mental well-being. It encompasses not only the absence of illness or disease, but also the presence of positive characteristics such as resilience, self-esteem, and the ability to cope with stress.

For example, in the context of clinical psychology, mental health would refer to an individual's emotional and psychological well-being. In the field of health psychology, physical health would refer to an individual's overall physical well-being, including the presence or absence of chronic illnesses or other health conditions.

Examples of research topics within psychology that focus on health include:

  • Understanding the factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of mental health and well-being
  • Examining the role of stress in the development of physical and mental health issues
  • Investigating the relationship between mental and physical health
  • Analyzing the impact of lifestyle factors on overall health and well-being
  • Exploring the effectiveness of different interventions for improving mental and physical health.

Overall, the study of health in psychology aims to understand how psychological and behavioral factors contribute to overall health and well-being, as well as to develop interventions to promote and maintain health.
