Mental Health & Wellness
Mental health refers to everything that includes your emotional, psychological and social well-being. It is important in every stage of life, from childhood to adulthood, as if can affect how you think, feel and act around others.
When care providers talk about mental wellness, this is more than advising you to talk with a friend or taking a 15min walk in a park when you’re feeling moments of depression or anxiety. It is also more than just focusing on mental or cognitive function. It is really about our relationship with ourselves and our emotions, and our social relationships and our ability to function in day-to-day life.
Mental wellness does not just equate to the absence of mental illness. A person with an obsessive compulsive disorder, mild depression or an attention deficit disorder can still exhibit positive mental wellness. It is a lifelong process and part of an overall wellness plan that is proactive approach to strengthen our emotional, social and psychological resources.
