Mental Health

Mental health is a condition of total emotional and mental well-being, not only the absence of mental health problems. Physical and psychological health are inextricably intertwined but undervalued. Constant mood swings, a profoundly entrenched emotion such as shame or denial, avoidance of social events, and disruption in the eat and sleep cycle are only a few indications of deteriorating mental health. Anger, anxiety, and depression are the most frequent mental illnesses. To sustain mental health, few might require simple routine changes such as healthy nutrition, goal-setting, working out, journaling, or any activity that offers calmness, whereas few require medical attention.
