Mental Health

 Home Page Icon   What is Mental Health?

Mental health includes our emotional and social well being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, build relationships, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood through to adulthood.

Mental health challenges can affect us all and may include difficulties in thinking, mood and behaviour, but help is available.
