Selected post:

Mental and physical health are equally important elements of overall health at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. We know that our physical health can affect our mood. But our mental status can also affect our physical health: For example, depression increases the risk for conditions like stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Mental health includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. If we experience mental health problems, our thoughts, mood, and behavior could be affected. Our mental health also helps determine how we manage stress, relate to others, and make choices.
Many factors contribute to mental health problems (for example, biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry; life experiences, such as trauma or abuse; and family history of mental health problems).
Mental health problems are among the most common health conditions in the United States: 1 in 5 Americans will experience a mental illness in a given year; 1 in 5 children have had a seriously debilitating mental illness; 1 in 25 Americans lives with a serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or major depression.
Mental health problems are common but help is available. People with mental health problems can get better and many recover completely. So let’s start this conversation with our peers, co-workers, friends, and family!
