Mental Health Awareness Month: “Back To Basics”

History has it that since 1949, Mental Health America and our affiliates have celebrated May as Mental Health Month by reaching out to millions of individuals through the media, local events, and screenings.

“Back to Basics” is the theme of MHA’s 2022 Mental Health Month Toolkit. Many people are finding that worry, isolation, and uncertainty have taken a toll on their well-being after two years of pandemic life. Our purpose is to provide a basic understanding of mental health and mental health disorders, as well as information on what people may do if their mental health is a concern.

If you’re considering addressing your mental health for the first time, you may come across words that appear straightforward but that you don’t fully understand. This list has been developed to assist you! Keep reading…

The first thing on the developed list is to define mental health:

Mental health is defined as our emotional and social well-being, which influences how we think, feel, and act. It aids with social interaction, decision-making, stress management, and many other facets of daily life. Mental health is something that everyone has, and it is equally important as physical health.

Then, we look at what Plays A Role In Developing Mental Health Conditions:

Most mental health issues have multiple possible causes, which are referred to as risk factors. You are more likely to develop a mental health disorder in your life if you have more risk factors. After a traumatic incident or a significant transition, mental health disorders might develop slowly or symptoms can show more rapidly.

Knowing how to maintain your mental health is pivotal.

Mental health affects your general well-being, whether you recognize it or not. You can enjoy your life and the people in it when you’re mentally healthy. You can feel good about yourself, maintain good relationships, and deal with stress when you’re mentally healthy. It’s natural for your mental health to fluctuate over time; we all confront challenges in our lives. When you’re doing well, developing good habits is a terrific approach to support your mental health, and it also helps you develop skills to utilize if you do experience signs of a mental health disorder.

The following are ways  you can maintain good mental health:

  1. Having good food choices and nutrition.
  2. Exercising regularly
  3. Sleeping enough
  4. Effective stress management strategies
  5. Building your coping skills
  6. Building a formidable support system

Again, you need to recognize when you need help with your mental health.

Consider your bodily well-being. Now and again, we all have days when we are a little sore, have a headache, or are extremely exhausted. This does not necessarily imply that you are ill. When something drastically changes for the worse or prohibits you from functioning normally, you’re unwell.

Mental health is comparable — having a bad day now and again is to be anticipated, but when tasks that were once simple become much more difficult, something is wrong. You should examine your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors rather than your physical symptoms.

Lastly, once you recognize that, you begin to think of what to do when you need help. It’s natural to feel as if no one knows what you’re going through when you have a mental health condition or are dealing with a mental health issue. Many people, however, overcome their mental health issues. You are not alone; assistance is available, and rehabilitation is possible.
