This is a very introductory article, but if you haven't considered the question in any sort of depth it's an invaluable starting point. The article outlines three major theories of mind: mind-body dualism, mind-body identity (a.k.a. identity theory); and functionalism. In my own work I've never flt that mind-body dualism is plausible, though it is widely popular as (what might be called) a form of folk psychology.
