What is Mental Health?
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:
Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry
Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse
Family history of mental health problems
Mental health problems are common but help is available. People with mental health problems can get better and many recover completely. However for some we have to understand it may take many years for recovery.
What do I do if the support doesn’t help?
What works for one person may not work for another. So you have to been open and try different approaches. Or even try different hobbies to keep your mind occupied.
What Causes Mental Health?
Anything can cause Mental health from the rigors of day to day life, work, traumatic events, finances this list is bar no means exhausted.
Is there a cure or treatment?
Again what works for one person may not for the other. Some people take medication and others don't, counselling may work or CBT others such as exercise, good healthy food. Just talking about it also works.
