Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act and can determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and the choices we make. Mental health is important during every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood and affects around one in four people in any given year.
Several factors can contribute to mental health issues, such as trauma, abuse, isolation, loneliness, alcohol or drug abuse, experiences related to other ongoing (chronic) medical conditions, such as cancer or diabetes or it can be a chemical imbalance.
