Mental health: support for you and your loved ones

We all have stressors in our lives. Sometimes, we struggle with the sadness, loneliness, or anxiety they bring—and find that these feelings can be difficult to talk about. But we all deserve to treat our mental health with the same care and compassion we do our physical health.

Here, you’ll find resources to help support your emotional well-being and be there for loved ones who need the same.

Learn what triggers your anxiety. Is it work, family, school, or something else? Write in a journal, and look for a pattern.1
