About mental health
We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. Mental health is our ability to feel, think and act in ways that help us to enjoy life and deal with challenges.
Life involves constant ups and downs. We can never completely get rid of problems or avoid crises. However, by learning how to cope with everyday life events and make positive health choices, you can improve your chances of avoiding emotional and physical illness.
