Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic. XXII, 1958: Is Mental Health Possible? Paul W. Pruyser. Pp. 58-66.

In this paper, which was originally a convocation address, Pruyser concludes that mental health is a desideratum, but in the hierarchy of values is subordinate to allegiance to reality. Mental health does not necessarily mean absence of anxiety or guilt, nor is it a static attainment. Paraphrasing Kierkegaard's statement about being a Christian, Pruyser concludes his article with the statement, '… one never is mentally healthy; one can only strive to become so'.
