Why is emotional health considered the most important domain of health?

Why is emotional health considered the most important domain of health?

Mind-Body-Spirit: Emotional health is certainly important, but i don't know that any one area of health is "the most important domain." we're whole beings: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual/energetic.
