What Is Mental Health?
According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, 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 your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:
Mental health problems are common but help is available. People with mental health problems can get better and many recover completely.
Mental health concerns include psychiatric disorders and other problems with mental and social well-being such as problems with adjustment, anxiety, depression, coping, behavior etc. These types of concerns are often addressed by mental health social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists.
Each workbook in this series includes fully reproducible therapy worksheets, mental health assessment tools, journaling activities, mental health worksheets and educational handouts. Our workbooks are designed to help you actively involve your client in the healing process.
When folks are dealing with a mental health issue, many of their basic life skills also suffer. It becomes more difficult to manage stress, cope with change, communicate effectively, remain optimistic and maintain healthy relationships. The workbooks in this series address these life skills and more. Practitioners can use the mental health assessment tools to identify specific problem areas, and use the therapy worksheets to teach new skills, and assist their clients in making plans to modify their behaviors.
Studies show that people with mental health issues get better and many recover completely. Recovery refers to the process in which people are able to live, work, learn, and participate fully in their communities. There are more treatments, services, and community support systems than ever before, and they work. That includes the work you are doing.
