Mental Health Wellness



Mental health is how individuals think, act and cope with life and the stressors and challenges that are part of the human experience. The state of one's mental health can influence the ways in which they look at themselves, their life and others around them. It also strongly influences an individual's potential for achieving their goals and is an important tool in obtaining and maintaining a feeling of well being.

Individuals with good mental health wellness are better able to function during stressful situations. Good mental health wellness is reflected in several ways:

  • Bouncing back from adversity
  • Communicating about your feelings
  • Forming good interpersonal relationships
  • Setting and achieving realistic goals
  • Seeking help in difficult times
  • Enjoying life to the fullest
  • Self-appreciation
