Mental or behavioral health issues affect 1 in 5 Americans. Taking care of your mental health is vital to living a full and happy life. Our mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also determines how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices. May is National Mental Health Awareness Month during which the goal is to increase awareness of those struggling and help reduce the stigma for seeking help.
