The Importance of Mental Health

Mental health is about how people think, feel and act as they face life’s situations. Our mental health affects how we handle stress, relate to one another and make decisions. Mental health influences the way we look at ourselves, our lives and others who are in our lives. Just like physical health, mental health is important at every stage of life.

All aspects of our lives are affected by our mental health, and protecting our children’s mental health is a natural part of our parental obligation. Caring for our children—emotionally as well as physically—is critical to their daily lives and their independence.

Everybody - adults, children and teenagers - can have mental health disorders that interfere with their lives. These conditions can affect the way they think, feel and act. When untreated, mental health disorders can lead to school failure, family conflicts, drug abuse, violence or worse. Let's all do our part to build our awareness and understand these conditions, to recognise the signs and symptoms and take steps to improve our and our loved one's mental wellbeing.

Mental Health Statistics
