Mental Health

Mental Health

Mental health refers to a person’s emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It encompasses a range of factors, including how individuals think, feel, and behave, as well as how they cope with stress, relate to others, and make choices in their lives. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood and old age.
