Learn about the basics of mental health. 

Everyone should have a solid understanding of mental health and how it impacts our lives. We are going to walk you through the basics of mental health over the next year, so make sure to keep an eye on your inbox. Let's start by defining mental health.

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 through adulthood. Look through our mental health page for more on mental health. Then, see what resources are available.
