The Importance of Mental Health

Mental health includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life - from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Because mental health is so important in our life, nearly all individuals could benefit from therapy at some point in their lives. Through therapy one can better understand how their brain works, why they behave the way they do, and how to manage overwhelming feelings and events in their lives.
