Do you know that we learn quite more faster to hate than to love? Yes, because loving requires some basics we find difficult to stand by at times.  Its a lot easier to condemn because it avoids us to question our own position and our way of thinking. But at the end, no one can enhance his life based on hate and exclusion or rejection.

The 4 core values of the Mental Health Standards are saying in a very simple manner what it takes to find some peace in our life, not only with others but with ourselves as well. No books needed, no long rules and no long principles that are unrealistic to apply, no morality lessons to give and receive, no priest to pay, just 4 core values and we are safe.

Safe?  Yes. We say “safe” because they are respectful of the Human Being needs. No matter where we live, no matter where we come from, no matter who we are and what we do in life,  we need to feel and live positive interactions as much as we need to be forgiven when we make mistakes so we can learn out of fear and guilt.  But we also wish we’ll have the chance to develop our potential, to live our passions without judgment, be in touch with our profound nature, so we can find our way in this life, and feel Life. These standards are safe for our good Mental Health and the potential we give ourselves to find our own balance. Not the other’s interpretation of balance, but its own personal balance where we can “Be”.

The 4 core values of Mental Health are accessible to anyone. Take a step toward integrating progressively these four values in your life, this will not only change your world, this is going to change the world.

The 4 core values of Mental Health are a true good and simple way to take a non-destructive direction in our life. But not only that, they are safe for our Mental Health balance and they contribute in helping feeling better about oneself and others.


Empathy is about considering others with humanism, sensitivity and dignity. It is about being kind and caring to others as much as being capable of accepting that each other's differences are an enrichment for all. It is also about integrating that we are all imperfect and equal Beings with no need to fail for judgment, rejection or exclusion.


Humility is about the need to question ourselves, the importance of doubting to avoid pretension and certitudes. It is about admitting that we're an infinitely small component of this world, but all interrelated, dependent of each other. Also that we all make mistakes and everyone must be provided a right to correct them because life is a continuous learning process.


Integrity is about honesty and fairness. It is a commitment to act with equity, justice and rectitude. It is about the need to be conscious of what we are asking or taking versus what we are giving. Crucial to build trust, integrity must inspire our way of being with oneself and others to avoid feeding-in a sense of unfairness, responsible of most of destructive behaviours.


Excellence is about courage. It is a commitment that requires continuous effort and discipline to overcome fears. It is about taking initiatives and dare Being who we are but also who we can be, this, inspired by all experiences that life brings. It is also about the capacity to listen to our needs, to reflect and act positively from what we learned, this to engage toward the development of our full potential.
