Our Mental health includes our 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 life one may experience mental health problems which could in turn affect thinking, mood and behavior. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:

Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry
