Mental health is how you think, feel and act. In general, people in good mental health have a positive attitude and look forward to the challenges of life, feel good about themselves and others, and act responsibly in their work and in their relationships.

Mental illness is NOT the same as poor mental health. Mental illness is a disorder of the brain, the body’s most important organ. A mental illness is a disease, much like heart disease or cancer. It is no one’s fault.

Know the facts.
