What Is Mental Health?
Mental health includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behaviour could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:
1) Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry.
2) Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse.
3) A family history of mental health problems.

1)Eating or sleeping too much or too little.
2)Pulling away from people and usual activities.

Treating mental health problems
There are various ways people with mental health problems might receive treatment. It is important to know that what works for one person may not work for another; this is especially the case with mental health.
Some strategies or treatments are more successful when combined with others. A patient with a chronic mental disorder may choose different options at different stages in their life. The majority of experts say that a well-informed patient is probably the best judge of what treatment suits them best.
Treatments can include:
Psychotherapy (talking therapies) – this is a psychological approach to treating mental illness. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy are examples.
Medication – although it can not cure mental disorders, some medications can improve symptoms.
Self-help – including lifestyle changes such as reducing alcohol intake, sleeping more, and eating well.
