Abstract
Mental health is more than the absence of mental illness or mental disorders. It constitutes a form of complete well-being and favors our capacity to enjoy life and to face the challenges we confront. Quality of life and well-being are important indicators of mental health, so it is important to know the parameters affecting them, in order to develop programs of mental health promotion. After more than 25 years of research on quality of life and well-being of different populations: general population, economically disadvantaged populations, people with mental disorders and their families, we will present the results of research on these populations. We will also present the main parameters related or that predict the quality of life and well-being through important research identified by a literature review.
