Mental health is health, and your state of mind can make a big difference in your physical and emotional well-being. For example, did you know that chronic stress can negatively impact your heart, while laughter and the hormones related to happiness can benefit it?
According to the CDC, mental health illnesses are among the most common health conditions in the U.S. These can range from mild to severe, and they may be life-long or episodic. Regardless of the type or duration, all mental health concerns deserve to be treated promptly, just like your physical health.
