The research paper provides a comparative description of the specifics of manifestation of mental health in persons with “somatogenic frustration” and in a group of people who are not frustrated by their somatic state - healthy.
An analysis of the empirical study suggests that people with “somatogenic frustration” have specific features of manifestation of the main indicators of mental health.
Thus, studying the indicators of self-actualization has allowed asserting that persons with “somatogenic frustration”, in comparison with the data of healthy persons, are characterized by lower indicators of competence in time, which manifests itself in the lack of ability to experience the present own life in its entirety, to see it holistically. A lower quantitative indicator of self-esteem affirms the inability to fully appreciate the positive qualities of own character, to respect himself for them, and the lower indicator of spontaneity testifies to a lower ability to directly and spontaneously express own feelings. A lower indicator of sensitivity points to the insufficient degree in which individuals realize their needs and feelings, and how well they feel and reflect them. The value orientation indicator is lower compared with healthy people, indicating a lower degree by which a person shares the values inherent in self-actualizing people. A lower indicators of self-perception, support, and synergy point to a low degree of perception of self as it is, regardless of the assessment of their dignity or disadvantages, a lower degree of ability of individuals to a holistic perception of the world and people, to understanding the connection of contradictions such as game and work, physical and spiritual.
As for the indicator of meaningfulness of life, in people with “somatogenic frustration” it is on the lower limit of the established minimum threshold, while in a group of healthy people this figure is equal to the upper limit of the norm. Most people with “somatogenic frustration” (66.7%) have targets in their lives that give meaning and direction to their lives, but besides, in this group there are people (33.3%) who discretely perceive their way of life, build big plans while lacking the real foundation and personal responsibility for their implementation. In general, people in this group are not satisfied with their lives in the present.
Persons with a “somatogenic frustration” are in a state of moderate anxiety, which also organically complements these features of their mental health.
The identified features of manifestations of mental health in people with “somatogenic frustration” require appropriate psycho-corrective measures to improve their mental health.
