Mental health impacts our thoughts, actions, and emotions and is important at all life stages - from childhood through adulthood. Our mental health determines how we make decisions, handle stress, interact with others, and make healthy choices. Taking steps to maintain or develop positive mental health allows us to realize our full potential, work productively, and contribute in meaningful ways to our communities.
