Mental Health Awareness

What is Mental Health and Why Does It Matter?

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act and can affect our physical health also. It helps determine how we deal with stress, relate to others, make choices and how we function at work and in our personal lives.

What Can Impact Mental Health?

Our mental health can have ups and downs - but that does not automatically mean we have a mental illness. Most of the time coping skills, trusted support systems, and resiliency, help people to work through difficulties.

What Is the Difference Between Mental Health & Mental Illness?

Mental illness refers to a wide range of conditions that can affect anyone. Mental illness can be caused by biological factors and requires professional help and should be seen as a medical condition.
