Mental Health Wellness Resources
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.1 Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Depression is a mental health disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, emptiness, and hopelessness, as well as a loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed. It is more than just a feeling of being “down in the dumps” or “blue” for a few days. Depression can cause physical symptoms such as insomnia, fatigue, and headaches, as well as mental symptoms such as difficulty concentrating and making decisions.
What is Trauma
Trauma is an emotional response to a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. It can be caused by physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, neglect, loss of a loved one, a natural disaster, or any other life-altering event. Trauma can lead to mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other emotional difficulties. It is important to seek professional counseling to help process and cope with traumatic experiences.
