    The technical definition of health refers to the state of well-being that is free of disease. This means that a person is considered healthy if they do not have any illnesses or medical conditions that affect their physical or mental well-being. It goes beyond just not being sick and includes aspects such as proper functioning of the body, absence of disease, and overall well-being. This definition emphasizes the importance of being disease-free and in a state of optimal health.

    What is the main difference between health and wellness?

    • A.

      Wellness is what you have; health is the best you can get.

    • B.

      Health is only your physical health. Wellness is your physical, mental, and spiritual health.

    • C.

      Health is something you always have (in different levels). Wellness is the best your health can be.

    • D.

      Wellness only effects your mind and spirit. Health only effect your body.

    Correct Answer
    C. Health is something you always have (in different levels). Wellness is the best your health can be.
    Explanation
    The main difference between health and wellness is that health is something that a person always has, but it can vary in levels. On the other hand, wellness refers to the best state of health that a person can achieve. While health primarily focuses on physical well-being, wellness encompasses physical, mental, and spiritual health. Therefore, wellness is a broader concept that encompasses various aspects of a person's overall well-being, while health specifically refers to the condition of the body.

    The "scale" that shows a picture of how our health is always changing is called the:

    • A.

      Sick-Healthy Scale.

    • B.

      Wellness-Sickness Scale.

    • C.

      Illness-Wellness Continuum.

    • D.

      Illness-Healthfulness Continuum.

    Correct Answer
    C. Illness-Wellness Continuum.
    Explanation
    The "scale" that shows a picture of how our health is always changing is called the Illness-Wellness Continuum. This scale represents the spectrum of health from illness to wellness, indicating that health is not simply the absence of illness but a dynamic state that can fluctuate over time. It recognizes that individuals can move along this continuum based on various factors such as lifestyle choices, medical interventions, and overall well-being. The term "Illness-Wellness Continuum" accurately describes the concept of health as a continuum rather than a binary state.

Physical health is important for the proper functioning of the body's systems and organs, as well as for preventing diseases and maintaining a healthy weight. It also plays a crucial role in mental and emotional well-being, as physical activity releases endorphins that improve mood and reduce stress. Therefore, physical health encompasses the maintenance of the body and its overall wellness.

    • D.

      Something that only positively effects your health.

    Correct Answer
    A. Something that increases your chance of injury, illness, or possible death.
    Explanation
    A risk factor is something that increases your chance of injury, illness, or possible death. This means that it is a factor or condition that can contribute to negative outcomes for an individual's health and well-being. It is not limited to only happening when someone engages in dangerous behavior or something that others can control. Risk factors can be present in various aspects of life, such as environmental factors, genetic predispositions, or lifestyle choices, and they can have a detrimental impact on one's health.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • A.

      Biological, Behavioral, and Environmental

    • B.

      Biological, Behavioral, and Emotional

    • C.

      Behavioral, Formative, and Emotional

    • D.

      Environmental, Biological, and Interpersonal

    Correct Answer
    A. Biological, Behavioral, and Environmental
    Explanation
    The three main categories for risk factors are biological, behavioral, and environmental. Biological risk factors refer to genetic or physiological factors that increase the likelihood of developing a certain condition or disease. Behavioral risk factors are related to lifestyle choices and habits that can contribute to health problems, such as smoking or poor diet. Environmental risk factors include external factors in the physical, social, or cultural environment that can impact health, such as exposure to pollutants or living in a high-crime area.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    All of the following situations are considered risk factors EXCEPT:

    • A.

      You exercise three times a week for 60 minutes.

    • B.

      You notice that many of your relatives and family members have the same disease.

    • C.

      You play video games more than you go outside.

    • D.

      The friends you hang out with like to go to parties where there is alcohol and drugs being used.

    Correct Answer
    A. You exercise three times a week for 60 minutes.
    Explanation
    The given answer is "You exercise three times a week for 60 minutes." This answer is correct because exercise is not considered a risk factor for developing diseases. In fact, regular exercise is generally associated with a lower risk of developing various health conditions. The other options mentioned in the question are all potential risk factors: having relatives with the same disease indicates a genetic predisposition, excessive video game playing may lead to a sedentary lifestyle, and being around alcohol and drugs increases the risk of substance abuse and related problems.

    What is the definition of prevention?

    • A.

      The process of preventing an illness or injury from happening.

      The effort to keep violence and bad things from happening.

    • C.

      Taking precautionary measures when doing or behaving in activities.

    • D.

      Taking measures to help something succeed.

    Correct Answer
    A. The process of preventing an illness or injury from happening.
    Explanation
    The definition of prevention is the process of taking measures to avoid or stop an illness or injury from occurring. This can involve various actions such as practicing good hygiene, getting vaccinated, wearing protective gear, or following safety guidelines. The focus is on proactively addressing potential risks and minimizing their impact, rather than waiting for them to happen and then treating them. By taking preventive measures, individuals and communities can reduce the occurrence and severity of illnesses and injuries, promoting overall well-being and health.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What is the definition of abstinence?

    • A.

      Not eating certain foods or drinking certain things to prevent disease.

    • B.

      Avoiding or not participating in things that could cause you illness or injury.

    • C.

      Using objects or other methods to protect oneself from illness or injury.

    • D.

      Going to the doctor to get checked up for certain illnesses.

    Correct Answer
    B. Avoiding or not participating in things that could cause you illness or injury.
    Explanation
    Abstinence refers to the act of avoiding or not participating in things that could potentially cause illness or injury. It involves refraining from engaging in activities or behaviors that may pose a risk to one's health or well-being. This can include abstaining from certain foods or drinks to prevent disease, as well as avoiding activities or substances that may lead to harm or injury. The definition does not mention using objects or going to the doctor for check-ups, as these are not directly related to the concept of abstinence.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which of the following steps is NOT a step to the DECIDE Model?

    • A.

      Define the problem/issue

      Evaluate your issues

    • C.

      Identify your options/choices

    • D.

      Evaluate your decision

    Correct Answer
    B. Evaluate your issues
    Explanation
    The DECIDE Model is a decision-making framework that helps individuals make informed choices. It involves several steps, including defining the problem/issue, identifying options/choices, evaluating the decision, and taking action. However, evaluating your issues is not a step in the DECIDE Model. This step seems redundant as it overlaps with the step of evaluating the decision itself. Therefore, it is not included in the model.

    Explanation
    Health literacy refers to the ability of individuals to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make informed decisions about their health. It involves being able to read and comprehend health information, as well as apply that knowledge to make informed choices about healthcare options. This definition encompasses the idea that health literacy is not just about reading medical reports or using medical technology, but rather about the overall ability to access, understand, and utilize health information to improve one's health outcomes.

    Rate this question:

    Having strong feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or despair that lasts for more than a few weeks and interferes with daily life are all signs of:

    • A.

      Bipolar disorder

    • B.

      Clinical depression

    • C.

      Manic depression

    • D.

      Suicidal tendencies

    Correct Answer
    B. Clinical depression
    Explanation
    Having strong feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or despair that lasts for more than a few weeks and interferes with daily life are all signs of clinical depression. Clinical depression is a mental health disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, changes in appetite or weight, sleep disturbances, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and thoughts of death or suicide. It is different from bipolar disorder and manic depression, as it does not involve extreme mood swings between mania and depression. Suicidal tendencies can be a symptom of clinical depression, but they are not exclusive to this condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    An illness that is characterized by extreme mood swings between depression and intense happiness, or mania is called:

    • A.

      Schizophrenia

    • B.

      Suicidal tendencies

    • C.

      Clinical depression

    • D.

      Bipolar disorder

    Correct Answer
    D. Bipolar disorder
    Explanation
    Bipolar disorder is an illness characterized by extreme mood swings between depression and intense happiness, or mania. People with bipolar disorder experience periods of elevated mood, energy, and irritability (mania) as well as periods of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities (depression). These mood swings can be severe and disruptive to daily life. Unlike clinical depression, which is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest, bipolar disorder involves alternating episodes of both depression and mania. It is different from schizophrenia, which is a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior and a loss of touch with reality.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The following are all causes of depression EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Having a very low self-esteem.

    • B.

      An imbalance in the chemicals in the brain.

    • C.

      Substance or alcohol use or abuse.

    • D.

      Listening to heavy metal or punk music.

    Correct Answer
    D. Listening to heavy metal or punk music.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "listening to heavy metal or punk music." Depression can be caused by various factors such as low self-esteem, chemical imbalances in the brain, and substance or alcohol use or abuse. However, listening to heavy metal or punk music is not a recognized cause of depression. It is important to note that music preferences may vary from person to person and do not directly lead to mental health disorders like depression.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Suicide is:

    • A.

      The wanting and attempting to destroy oneself.

    • B.

      The unintentional injury of oneself.

    • C.

      The unintentional killing of oneself.

    • D.

      The intentional killing of oneself.

    Correct Answer
    D. The intentional killing of oneself.
    Explanation
    Suicide is defined as the intentional killing of oneself. It involves a deliberate and voluntary act of ending one's own life. This act is often motivated by various factors such as mental health issues, emotional distress, or a sense of hopelessness. It is important to understand that suicide is a serious matter and requires immediate attention and support from mental health professionals and loved ones.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    The following are all good ways to help someone who may be considering suicide EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Asking if the person is serious about their jokes and comments about suicide and killing themselves.

    • B.

      Have the person talk to a trusted adult, particularly a parent, teacher, or a counselor.

    • C.

      Try to have them share their feelings and their plans with you so you can gauge how serious the issue is.

    • D.

      Tell the person to get over their issues and that their problems are not that serious.

    Correct Answer
    D. Tell the person to get over their issues and that their problems are not that serious.
    Explanation
    The answer "Tell the person to get over their issues and that their problems are not that serious" is not a good way to help someone who may be considering suicide because it dismisses their feelings and minimizes the seriousness of their situation. It is important to validate their emotions and encourage them to seek help from a trusted adult or professional.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Which of the following statements about self-injury or self-mutilation is NOT TRUE?

    • A.

      Self-injury is a negative coping mechanism for stress.

    • B.

      People who self-injure themselves usually do not know how to positively cope with stress.

    • C.

      People who self-injure may also suffer from depression or anxiety issues.

    • D.

      Self-injury is a sign that a person wants to commit suicide.

    Correct Answer
    D. Self-injury is a sign that a person wants to commit suicide.
    Explanation
    Self-injury is not necessarily a sign that a person wants to commit suicide. While self-injury may be a manifestation of underlying mental health issues such as depression or anxiety, it is primarily a coping mechanism for dealing with emotional pain or stress. It is important to understand that self-injury does not always indicate a desire to end one's life, but rather a way to manage overwhelming emotions.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    The following are all considered defense mechanisms EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Repression

    • B.

      Sublimation

    • C.

      Exploitation

    • D.

      Denial

    Correct Answer
    C. Exploitation
    Explanation
    Exploitation is not considered a defense mechanism. Defense mechanisms are psychological strategies that individuals use unconsciously to protect themselves from anxiety or distress. Repression involves pushing unwanted thoughts or memories into the unconscious mind. Sublimation is redirecting unacceptable impulses into socially acceptable behaviors. Denial is refusing to acknowledge or accept reality. However, exploitation refers to taking advantage of others for personal gain, which does not serve as a defense mechanism but rather reflects unethical behavior.

    • C.

      A mental and physical reaction to things that cause you panic or unease.

    • D.

      A psychological reaction to threatening or challenging issues in life.

    Correct Answer
    B. The reaction of the body and mind to threatening or challenging events or things in life.
    Explanation
    Stress is the body and mind's response to events or situations that are perceived as threatening or challenging. It is not limited to just physical or mental reactions, but involves both aspects. Stress can be triggered by various factors and can manifest in different ways, such as increased heart rate, tension, anxiety, or difficulty concentrating. It is a natural response that prepares the body to deal with perceived threats or challenges, but excessive or prolonged stress can have negative effects on physical and mental health.

    Rate this question:

  • 23.

    • A.

      Eustress and distress

    • B.

      Unstress and distress

    • C.

      Youstress and destress

    • D.

      Instress and unstress

    Correct Answer
    A. Eustress and distress
    Explanation
    Eustress and distress are the two forms of stress. Eustress refers to positive or beneficial stress that motivates and energizes an individual, leading to improved performance and personal growth. On the other hand, distress refers to negative or harmful stress that overwhelms an individual, causing anxiety, discomfort, and reduced well-being. These two forms of stress represent the different effects that stress can have on individuals, with eustress being beneficial and distress being detrimental.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      The body's total reaction to stress that occurs in three stages.

    • B.

      The mind's total reaction to stress that occurs in stages.

    • C.

      The physical and mental effects to stress over a long period of time.

    • D.

      A person's battle to overcome the issues that occur with stress.

    Correct Answer
    A. The body's total reaction to stress that occurs in three stages.
    Explanation
    The General Adaptation Syndrome refers to the body's overall response to stress, which happens in three stages. This means that when the body is exposed to stress, it goes through a predictable pattern of physiological changes. The three stages include the alarm stage, where the body prepares for fight or flight response, the resistance stage, where the body tries to adapt to the stressor, and the exhaustion stage, where the body's resources are depleted. This explanation aligns with the given correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Which of the following statements about eating disorders and body image is NOT TRUE?

    • A.

      Eating disorders, especially anorexia nervosa, are the most deadly mental illnesses in the United States.

    • B.

      Symptoms of eating disorders are starving oneself, bingeing and purging, using laxatives or other medications, compulsive overeating, and having a distorted body image of oneself.

    • C.

      Though they are more common in women, men also are subject to eating disorders and body image issues, especially muscle dysmorphia.

    • D.

      People who have eating disorders are in complete control of their eating habits and don't eat simply because they want to lose more weight.

    Correct Answer
    D. People who have eating disorders are in complete control of their eating habits and don't eat simply because they want to lose more weight.
    Explanation
    The statement that is NOT TRUE is "People who have eating disorders are in complete control of their eating habits and don't eat simply because they want to lose more weight." This statement is incorrect because individuals with eating disorders often struggle with a lack of control over their eating habits and may engage in disordered eating behaviors as a way to cope with emotional distress or body dissatisfaction. Eating disorders are complex mental illnesses that involve a range of psychological, emotional, and physiological factors, and individuals with eating disorders often feel trapped in a cycle of disordered eating.
