  • We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. When we talk about mental health, we’re talking about our mental well-being: our emotions, thoughts, feelings, and ability to cope. Good mental health is not about feeling happy and confident all the time. It is about coping well despite problems.

    Our mental health can change daily depending on what is going on in our lives. Mental health and mental illness are often used as if they mean the same thing, but they do not. A mental illness impacts daily functioning by significantly affecting the way someone thinks, feels, or behaves. Treatments are available and there are many ways to get help.
