Mental health

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Positive mental health allows people to:

  • realise their full potential
  • cope with the stresses of life
  • work productively
  • make meaningful contributions to their communities
