Mental health, also known as emotional health or well-being, is just as important as physical health and should be well managed. Being mentally healthy means that you can
- make the most of your life's potential, goals and aspirations
- cope with life's challenges
- contribute meaningfully to family life, friendships and community

Mental health issues although increasingly common can be well managed; you're not alone - talk to someone you trust. Sharing a problem is often the first step to recovery.
