The mind and body are connected

The mind and body are connected

It’s important that you take care of your mental health just like you do your physical health. That’s because the mind and body overlap. Feeling good physically works wonders mentally. The reverse is true, too. A holistic focus on every aspect of your health can help you address not only mental well-being, but overall well-being.

Knowing about mental health is powerful

Knowing about mental health is powerful

Your mental health includes your thoughts, emotions, feelings and moods. It also includes your behavior — how you act and make choices. Your social well-being counts, too. How you relate to other people is part of your mental health. Good mental health allows you to cope with stress, have a good work life, bounce back from tough situations – in all be your best self.
 

People can have mental health problems as children or adults. But they can also get help and get better. Many people recover completely.
 

Behavioral health is like mental health. But it also includes other things that affect your mental wellness such as substance misuse, habits and how you act. When someone has a behavioral issue, it can include a mental health disorder, substance use disorder or both.
 

Learning about these conditions and possible treatment options can make it easier for you to help yourself or someone else.
