Mental health is not only the avoidance of serious mental illness. Your mental health is affected by numerous factors from your daily life, including the stress of balancing work with your health and relationships.
Similar to physical illness, mental illness can take many forms.
Although the stigma surrounding mental illness still exists, media campaigns aimed at education and acceptance have made great strides toward greater understanding and dispelling the fear many people feel. If you, or someone you know, has a mental illness, there is good news: all mental illnesses can be treated.
In this section, you will find resources to help you stay mentally fit and healthy, as well as learn more more about mental illness and their treatment.
