Did you Know?...

Mental health exists on a Spectrum. It can  move up and down depending on different circumstances – It can get better or worse.

1 of 5 People have Mental Illness BUT 5 of 5 People have Mental Health

When mental health issues go untreated, they can eventually lead to hospitalization, and then a long period of emotional recovery might be necessary. You should be checking in on your emotional state of well-being as often as your physical health, so that warning signs can be identified and more serious issues don’t have a chance to become ingrained.  Use the Mental Health Check in to determine your next steps for Achieving/maintaining your mental wellness!
