This World Mental Health Day, Valley Oaks Health is joining the World Health Organization in sharing the importance of mental health as well as the work being done in our community to provide support and healing.
The importance of mental health
Mental health helps determine how we approach life, handle stress, build relationships, and make decisions. Those with positive mental health are able to realize their full potential and make meaningful connections. However, when mental health is left on the back burner, many issues can arise, including:
- Decreased enjoyment of life
- Relational conflict
- Social isolation
- Addiction problems
- Legal and financial issues
- Self-harm and harm to others
- Weakened immune system and other health issues
How we’re helping
