Health is more than what we eat and how often we exercise. Our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors also need to be healthy for us to function well and be our best selves.
Unfortunately, mental health is something that we cannot always see or touch physically. This means that it is often difficult to tell if someone is struggling with their mental well-being. Whether you or someone you know has struggled with mental health, it is important to know that there is always help.
In addition to your friends and family, your match relationship offers you a person you can confide in right away if you are going through any struggles. There is also a lot of information available about the types of mental health and strategies for managing different conditions.
Learn about the different types of mental health conditions through National Alliance on Mental Illness and Mind.org.
