    Hi, Pls can someone grade this bmat essay?
    @MedicMind

    Mental Health has nothing to do with physical wellbeing.
    This statement is suggesting that the mind and body exist as two separate areas of the human body, and that there is no correlation between your mental and physical health, which is true to some respect as psychiatry is a different branch of medicine, therefore the two are not linked.
    The statement argues that poor mental health does not necessarily mean poor physical wellbeing and vice versa. Some may argue that this is not the case as it has been scientifically proven that an increase in stress levels leads to an increase in blood pressure and therefore a greater risk of suffering from a heart attack. Similarly, if somebody suffers from a stroke, they may feel depressed and discouraged to act towards recovery. In addition, an eating disorder, such as anorexia, will have a direct impact on physical wellbeing due to the drastic change in diet resulting in an extreme lack of energy to remain fit.
    While it is very difficult to measure if a healthy mind equals a healthy body, it can be assumed that having a more positive outlook on life encourages people to maintain a healthier lifestyle and having a positive mental attitude speeds recovery. This can be achieved be preventing depression in a stroke sufferer and this will lead to a quicker recovery and decreases mortality rates.
    Having suffered physical health problems in the past and failing to cope with it can prove to be detrimental to one’s mental health and suffering from mental health problems can have an extreme impact on a person’s physical wellbeing, however it is also true that a healthy does not mean a healthy body and a healthy body does not mean a healthy mind.

    I've not studied bmat so not sure if this advice is any good, but if I were looking at it as an uni essay I would expect you to say who exactly said these things instead of "some may argue" and who has said that stress levels leads to blood pressre etc.
