    It means that in order to be/remain healthy, among other things previously mentioned, one should be free of mental stress and anxiety.

    It's not a good sentence. It should read something like:
    "There is another, equally important, aspect to staying well - peace of mind." or
    " ... staying well: peace of mind."

    I don't think the comma after "important" is necessary. But then I'm a conservative when it comes to commas.
