mental health

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being, explains MentalHealth.gov: “It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.” Biological factors, life experiences, and family history all play a part in our mental health. Some of the more common conditions that can affect one’s mental health are depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
