Mental Health

What is mental health?

Mental health means striking a balance in all aspects of your life: social, physical, spiritual, economic and mental. Reaching a balance is a learning process. Mental health influences how we think and feel about ourselves and others. It also affects our ability to cope with change and adapt to major life events.
