About Mental Health

Just like our physical health, everyone has mental health. We can engage in behaviors and practices that support our mental health, which could include things like going to therapy, being physically active, talking with people we care about, spending time alone, or being creative.

Whether you have a diagnosable mental illness or not, it’s important to pay attention to you mental health and get support whenever you need it. Mental health is personal, and each of us gets to define what it looks like for ourselves. At the end of the day, mental wellness means living life in a way that works for you and embodying a version of yourself that you feel good about.
