About Mental Health

Sometimes the terms mental health and mental illness get mixed up. Mental health doesn't just mean that you aren't suffering from a mental illness, it sums up your whole outlook on life and how you deal with it.

Important elements include:

  • How you feel about yourself (self-esteem)
  • How you feel about the people around you (how you communicate with others and your relationships with others)
  • How you are able to face up to the stresses and strains of life (coping strategies)
