What is mental health?
Mental health can be measured by how well we cope with stress, relate to others and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Mental Health is how we…
Feel – feelings, sentiments, moods, sensitivity, affection, attachment, and relationships (self and others)
Think – thinking, memory, learning, language, decision making, problem solving, understanding, point of view, and relationships (self and others)
Act– actions, deeds, activities, manners, conduct, performance, and relationships (self and others)
Mental health relates to feeling good, both mentally and physically. When you are mentally healthy, you are generally high functioning in your thinking, behavior, and feelings. You may have your ups and downs, but your general state of being is good.
Mental Health Difficulties
Mental health difficulties can range from temporary reactions to a painful event or stress, symptoms of drug or alcohol use, lack of sleep, etc. right through to more severe psychiatric conditions and mental illness, such as depression and anxiety.
