According to the World Health Organization (WHO) it is “a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”

It is common knowledge that physical health is important and try to keep care of our bodies. What is not as commonly understood is that we need to do the same for our mental health. Mental health is a specific segment of overall health. Aspects of mental health include mood, focus, learning, and ways of thinking.

There are a wide array of mental health challenges. Some may be circumstantial and vary day to day such as stress or feelings of negativity. Others can be clinical and effect how one feels and thinks on a continual basis.
