What is Mental Health?
Mental health is a state of wellbeing that affects how we think, feel and act. A person with good mental health can realise their potential, cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and make a contribution to their community. However, 45% of Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. This can be caused by a range of factors, including life experiences, family history, stressful circumstances or individual factors like low self-esteem. Mental health services provide care and support to people with mental health problems, whether they’re going through a tough time or have a serious mental illness.
