Mental health plays a vital role in overall health and well-being. It includes our emotional, physiological, and social welfare. Mental health affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we deal with stress, make healthy decisions, and relate to others. Most importantly, good mental health is imperative at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
