Mental Health

The Link Between Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health

Being emotionally healthy doesn't mean you are happy 24/7. Instead, allow yourself to experience a range of emotions and don't judge yourself. Mental health suffers if you judge yourself for your feelings or if you experience unpleasant emotions (sadness, frustration, anger, etc) for extended periods of time. Acknowledge your emotions and address what's going on in life to cause them. Understand myths and facts about mental health. 

Self Discovery

The first step to positive mental health is destigmatizing mental and behavioral illness. "Seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness," says Ryan Leaf, the presenter of the above webinar. Leaf is a mental health advocate and former Coug and NFL football player.
