Taking Care of Our Mental Health

There is increased awareness these days that our mental health and well-being is a very important part of our overall health. In recent years, the pandemic, global instability, concern over the environment and negative social media influences have impacted each of us. In addition, events such as loss of a loved one, health challenges, being laid off or losing a home can seem insurmountable in the moment. We all experience loss at times in our lives. Good mental health gives us the resilience to get through challenges and stay steady.
