Mental health can be hard to discuss because it refers mostly to abstract concepts, such as our thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and imagination. Caring for our mental health is not always as straightforward, as, say, brushing your teeth. But when we take steps to care for our mental health, we find that we:
- Feel peaceful
- Can label our emotions
- Are able to express our emotions to others
- Can cope with overwhelming emotions
- Can control our behaviors
This lesson will explore ways in which we can actively care for our mental health.
