Mental health encompasses emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It influences cognition, perception, and behavior. It also determines how an individual handles stress, interpersonal relationships, and decision-making. Symptoms include confusion, depression, social withdrawal, extreme feelings of pleasure, anger, excitement, fear or grief.
People struggling with mental health often, because of the stigma attached, do not receive the needed help. Only some receive treatment.
Untreated, mental illness can contribute to higher medical expenses, poorer performance at school & work & fewer opportunities.
