My mental health and me

Our mental health is as important as our physical health. Disturbances in our mental health could affect our physical health. So, we must take good care of both. Life is complicated and full of ups, downs, pain, joy, twist, turns, setbacks, and triumphs leading to acute mental distress. Acute mental distress is usually short-lasting with complete return to normal mental state. Sometimes in life, everyone experiences mental distress which is a natural way we respond to stress mentally. Mental problem is when mental distress fails to resolve within a reasonable period and often time, is associated with some level of impairment in functions. When not controlled, mental problem could progress to mental illness. Mental illness is a dysfunction involving the brain that negatively affects someone's thoughts, emotions, and/or behaviors and significantly impairs functions and quality of life.
