Mental health

Mental health is an integral part of our overall health. Our mental state influences our mood, behaviour, learning, memory,  and  our overall sense of well-being.

Mental health is vital to our overall health throughout our lifespan. For younger children, mental health is vital in the development of social skills and  plays a key role in academic performance. Throughout our lifespan, our mental health influences our coping skills and our sense of well-being. Our mental health can even influence our physical health and how we age through our daily routine.

There are many factors that are important to our mental health

  • A supportive daily routine
  • Proper health maintenance and management of acute and chronic health concerns
  • Proper nutrition and hydration
  • Adequate rest and restorative sleep
  • Effective stress management and coping skills
  • Regular physical activity
  • Strong communication skills, opportunity for authentic self-expression
  • Support during challenging periods and major life changes
  • Addressing environmental and external factors that can affect our mental health
