It is also referred to as emotional health or mental health
It refers to how we think, act, and feel
It plays a big role in how we respond to situations and handle stress
and how we relate to others and enjoy our everyday lives
It is important at every stage of life
from childhood and adolescence through adulthood
Strong emotional health increases our ability
to handle whatever comes our way
We have more good days and more joy
and more opportunity to reach our potential
distressing experiences can impact our behavior in surprising ways:
Emotional Wellness Is a Community Effort.
We are a local coalition dedicated to shaping healthy, resilient communities.
We envision a future with strong families and thriving neighborhoods where everyone can speak up about emotional health and wellness, take steps to prioritize their mental well-being, and empower those around them to do the same.
Knowing when to seek support for yourself or a child is a demonstration of strength. The You Good? campaign is here to connect you to the support you need, when you need it!
Where Can I Start
We can’t always avoid trauma, but we can control how we heal from it.
This is a community effort, and we all have a role to play.
