Mental Health

People with good emotional health are in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They feel good about themselves and have good relationships. They can keep problems in perspective.

It’s important to remember that even people with good emotional health sometimes have emotional problems or mental illness. Mental illness often has a physical cause, such as a chemical imbalance in the brain. Stress and problems with health, family or work can sometimes trigger mental illness or make it worse. However, people with good emotional health have learned ways to cope with stress and problems. They know when they need to seek help from their doctor or a counselor.

Sometimes You Need to Talk to Someone:

  • When you feel like you can’t do it alone.
  • When you feel trapped, like there’s nowhere to turn.
  • When you worry all the time, and never seem to find the answers.
  • When the way you feel is affecting your sleep, your eating habits, your job, your relationships, your everyday life.
  • When it’s not getting any better.

When you need to talk to someone who can help, you need an experienced, trained professional.
