Mental Health/ Illness

2개월 전

EDUCATE. YOUR. SELVES. MENTAL HEALTH IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS ANY OTHER HEALTH ISSUES. IF NOT, MORE IMPORTANT.
Mental health includes our 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 choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
There has been a huge increase in people struggling with mental health issues/illnesses, regardless of age in the last decade. It’s quite repulsing. We need to do more to actually recognize when people are struggling or putting on a facade to seem like they are fine .. usually the people with the biggest smiles and the most light are usually the ones suffering most! Pay more attention to the people in your life you claim to care about or even a stranger for that matter. Going out of your way for a few minutes to compliment someone or even just be a listening ear goes a long way.
There is literally no health without mental health. Mental health and mental illnesses are different.
In the course of a lifetime, not all people will experience a mental illness, but everyone will struggle or have a challenge with their mental well-being (i.e., their mental health) just like we all have challenges with our physical well-being from time to time.
When we talk about mental health, we’re talking about our mental well-being: our emotions, our thoughts and feelings, our ability to solve problems and overcome difficulties, our social connections, and our understanding of the world around us.
A mental illness is an illness the affects that way people think, feel, behave, or interact with others. There are many different mental illnesses, and they have different symptoms that impact peoples’ lives in different ways.
There’s no on/off switch, just remember that the next time someone’s having a bad day and taking it out on you.
