Mental health is how a person thinks, feels, and acts when faced with life's situations. It impacts how people look at themselves, their lives, and the other people in their lives; evaluate their challenges and problems; and explore choices.
Mental health problems are real. They affect one's thoughts, body, feelings, and behavior. Mental health challenges are not necessarily just a passing phase. They can be severe, seriously interfere with a person's life, and even cause a person to become disabled.
