It is important to ensure our loved ones, friends, networks, and communities are comfortable talking about the topic of mental health on any day of the year, especially this year.
What is Mental Health? Mental Health is more than having a disorder or not having a disorder. It is a continuum of wellness that changes depending on stressors and the condition of our overall health. While some factors that create mental health problems cannot easily be changed or eliminated, we can maintain mental health and wellness by building our “toolbox” of wellness strategies using some Stress Less Techniques.
Below are additional strategies to promote mental health and some creative tools to support your wellness. We hope you find some of these ideas helpful!
