  • refers to the sum of all societal influences upon mental health. the term is often used in a context critical of the mental environment in industrialized societies. it is argued that just as industrial societies produce physical toxins and pollutants which harm humans' physical health, they also produce psychological toxins (e.g. television, excessive noise, violent marketing tactics, psychotropic drugs) that cause psychological damage. this poor mental environment may help explain why rates of mental illness are higher in industrial societies than in the developing world.
