KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Your mental health plays a big role in how well you feel on a day-to-day basis.
When it comes to health and well-being, the first thing that appears in most people’s heads is physical health. They talk about exercise, jogging, hitting the gym, etc. But they never really talk about their mental health.
Mental health includes our psychological, social, and emotional well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and how we act in our daily lives. Your ability to handle emotions, stress, how you socialize with others, and making decisions are greatly determined by your psychological state.

Do you know that there is a strong connection between your body and mind? When you are in physical pain for instance, your work and family life may be affected. But this can also weaken your state of mind, manifesting itself in cases such as stress, anxiety, or depression.
The opposite is true as well. According to studies, mental health problems can cause your physical health to deteriorate. For example: if you have chronic anxiety and depression, you may have trouble sleeping; thus, putting your physical health at risk.

IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE IN A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS, GET HELP NOW! YOU DON'T HAVE TO FEEL ALONE!!
