Look After Your Mental Health
There is often a lot of confusion about what we mean when we talk about mental health. Many people immediately start thinking about mental health problems or mental illness – but this is only one part of the picture… Everyone has ‘mental health’ and this can be thought of in terms of:
Not being able to study and go to College as normal
Our ability to make and keep friends and relationships
Our ability to learn from others and to develop psychologically and emotionally
Being mentally healthy is also about having the strength to overcome the difficulties and challenges we can all face at times in our lives – to have confidence and self-esteem, to be able to take decisions and to believe in ourselves.
