Take a Look at Your Mental Health

Every day, we are bombarded with information about how to improve our health. You have probably already heard something this week about what to eat, what exercises to do and what habits to pick up and break. We all want to live long and healthy lives, but often ignore one vitally important part of our health -- our mental health.

The connection between emotional and physical health is impossible to deny. Just think about how being stressed impacts your physical being. Have you ever been so upset that your stomach hurt? The opposite is true, too. Think about your emotions when you’re physically sick or injured.

A quick screening can give you a snapshot of your mental health. Bryan Medical Center offers a free and anonymous screening. After a few questions, users can find out if they would benefit from seeking professional help.
