There are several kinds of relationships that human nature encounters. Some are temporary, and others are long-lasting. Others are strong, while others are weak and easily distracted. All of them affect our mental health in one way or the other. Thus, in relationships, mental health can be maintained or distracted. This review aimed to explore the effect of interpersonal relationships on mental health. Information was obtained through an analysis of scholarly articles on this topic. Findings indicate that individuals in interpersonal relationships either have strong mental health or if the relationship is not maintained, they suffer mental symptoms. Healthy relationships promote mental health, while toxic relationships compromise mental health.
