Maintaining mental health
Maintaining good mental health is important for overall wellness, including physical health. While it’s not always easy, there are ways to maintain good mental health. Understanding the steps and tools you can take may lead to a lifetime of good mental and physical wellness for you, your loved ones, and your community.
Someone with good mental health is able to feel and express a range of emotions. They can build positive relationships with others. They live and work productively and are able to be engaged with the world around them.
You can help a child build resiliency and good mental health by focusing on their strengths, saying specific praise about an achievement, allowing your child to express all types of emotions, teach the value of helping others, and help your child understand how their behavior affects others.
