Mental health

what is it?

Mental health is the foundation of how we think, feel, and communicate. But at times, when difficulties occur in our ways of thinking and feeling, they may affect how we function daily, our relationships, our well-being, and how we contribute to society.
Mental illness

Should I worry?

Everyone will feel ups and downs in life, but we may want to seek professional support if we notice;
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a medical condition just like diabetes or heart disease; and is treatable. As more research is done to understand how the human brain works, treatments are available to support mental health concerns successfully.
Regardless of your age, gender, race, ethnicity or income; mental illness can affect you, and can take many forms. Some conditions can be mild where only a certain aspect of your daily life is affected (Eg: fear of heights [phobias]), while in some instances there can be adverse effects where the need arises to receive care in a hospital.
