Positive mental health is key to constructive behavior and thinking, emotional balance, and positive self-perception. It is important for your overall quality of life, health, relationships, and long-term goals.

Caring for your mental health is essential for living a more fulfilling life. You are more satisfied, more engaged at work, and more optimistic, and you have the internal resources to cope with life changes, stress, and difficult times.

Mental health care involves nurturing your own resources so that you are better able to navigate uncertainty and change. It also involves seeking mental care support when strong emotions linger, you’re feeling hopeless, or depression interferes with your normal functioning and personal relationships.
