The relationship between low self esteem and mental health has been considered for a number of years. Low self esteem is not categorised as a mental health disorder, however it can have an impact on your health and is closely linked with anxiety, depression and a number of personality disorders. states that our self-esteem is how we value and perceive ourselves.
