What is Mental Health?
EVERYONE has mental health, the same way EVERYONE has physical health.
The brain is a part of the body, which means, just like our muscles and bones, we can take care of and strengthen our brains.
If someone has strong mental health, they are able to feel good and respond to their emotions and stress in healthy ways. Our mental health affects the way we think, feel, and act. It also influences how we handle stress, connect to one another, and make decisions. Mental health looks different depending on who we are and what we are going though.
Mental health is important to take care of because it impacts every part of our lives. No matter who you are, or what you have experienced, there are things that you can do to strengthen your mental health!
