Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Low mental health can cause mental health disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders, and schizophrenia. These can have a wide variety of effects, such as a lack of motivation and energy, unhappiness, withdrawal from friends and family, changes in eating habits, delusions, hallucinations, and suicidal thoughts.
