Three Things to Know for Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Month and you may be wondering exactly what that means for you

It’s actually quite simple. You need to know three basic facts.

  1. Your mental health is as important as your physical health. Hundreds of studies have shown the direct connection between one’s physical health and one’s mental health. Don’t spend all your time concerned about what you eat and getting enough exercise while neglecting the health of that all-important thing between your ears.
  2. Mental health conditions are common and treatable. Experts estimate that anxiety disorders alone affect about 18% of the adult U.S. population. Most mental health conditions are highly treatable. Doctors often treat patients with medication, psychotherapy or some combination of the two very successfully.
  3. You can address your mental health today. You do not need to wait another day to address your mental health. You can take a free, anonymous online screening and get some insight into your own mental health right now.
