“Mental health typically describes our emotional state, but it can also include how emotions, thoughts, and behaviors all connect together,” explains Justina Gorman, Coalition & Community Development Coordinator at Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery. “It’s the way we process things and how we handle challenges every day.”
Physical health gets a lot of attention, but it’s not the only type of health you need. Your mental health is an important part of your overall health.
“Parents have a unique opportunity to model the act of seeking help and treatment for their mental health concerns,” says Jen Richeson, System Development Coordinator at Stark County Mental Health & Addiction Recovery.
