Understanding Mental Health

  • Mental well-being includes mental health, but goes far beyond treating mental illness.  Your mental health can change over time, depending on factors such as your workload, stress, and work-life balance.  Because it's such a crucial component of your health, it's important to focus on improving, or maintaining a state of daily mental well-being.
