Can spirituality help mental health?
After considering personality variables, the research concluded that forgiveness was the only spiritual trait predictive of mental health.
Spirituality may help people’s mental health by reducing their self-centredness, and developing their sense of belonging to a larger whole.
In fact, spirituality functions as a personality trait. This relationship between spirituality and health, will prove helpful in health care.
