Mental Health is more than just not having mental illness - mental health is an important resource for everyday life. It affects how we feel, think, and understand the world. Good mental health and well-being helps us to stay balanced, be resilient, to enjoy life, cope with everyday stress and to bounce back from bigger set-backs. Mental Health is just one piece of a person's overall health. This means there is no "health" without mental health.
Mental Health challenges are common. At some point in our lifetime, most of us will either struggle with a menal health challenge ourselves, or know someone who is affected by one.
