Mental Health Information and Resources

About 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 and adolescence through adulthood. 

Disclosing to Others

Ideally, the people around you will understand your illness and encourage you. But the important people in your life might not know much about mental illness. Find out more information about talking with others and disclosing important information about mental illness from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
