There are many ways to define mental health. To different people, it can mean a lot of different things. Here at Kelty, we view mental health as just one piece of a person’s overall health. This means there is no “health” without “mental health.” Mental health is more than just not having mental illness - mental health is an important resource for everyday life. It affects how we feel, think and understand the world. Good mental health and well-being helps us to stay balanced and be resilient, to enjoy life and cope with everyday stress, and to bounce back from bigger setbacks.
It is important to recognize that mental health challenges are common. At some point in our lifetime, most of us will either struggle with a mental health challenge ourselves, or know someone who is affected by one.
At Kelty, we believe that whether or not you’ve been diagnosed with a mental disorder, everyone can experience mental well-being. Many people with mental health challenges live happy and productive lives and create many meaningful relationships.
To keep your mind healthy, it is also important to take care of your body. The way you eat, sleep and stay active can have a big effect on your mental health. Healthy routines for eating, sleeping and physical activity can improve self-esteem, affect the way you think, and make it easier for you to deal with stress.
