WE ALL HAVE MENTAL HEALTH!
When you think of your mental health, consider this: all of us have had a cold or felt run down physically because of life events. That doesn’t mean it is a permanent state or that we have a specific illness. We know that eating a balanced diet, exercising and maybe even taking vitamins can help us recover.
Mental health is the same way. We all experience up’s and down’s mentally; it doesn’t mean it is permanent. To help navigate those harder times, there are many tools we can use to increase our mental wellness—think of them as vitamins for your mental health.
Defined by the World Health Organization, mental wellness is:
“a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
It’s no surprise that with the sudden and drastic changes to everyday life that our mental wellness has also been impacted. Here you will find resources for current needs you or a family member may have, along with tools to maintain good mental wellness.
