January is Mental Wellness Month, an opportunity to talk about caring for your mental wellness, where to go for support, and when to reach out.
It can be easy to put mental wellness on autopilot, only pausing when there is a crisis. But it’s important to be mindful and care for your mental wellness – even when you are not in crisis.
Being mentally well does not mean you don’t have “bad days,” or even that you do not have a mental illness. Approximately 15% of people have a diagnosed mental illness – but 100% of people people need to pay attention to their mental wellness.
