MENTAL HEALTH & COUNSELING  

Mental health includes your emotional, physiological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It can also determine how we handle stress or interact with others. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence into adulthood. Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected.
