“Healthy” is a Mind and Body Proposition

May is Mental Health Month

We all know about the importance of eating right, getting enough sleep, and exercising. But good health involves both our body and our mind. Healthy habits positively influence how a person feels and how their body functions.

Mental health is the ability to cope with daily life and the challenges it brings. When a person has “good” mental health, they are able to better deal with what comes their way. By contrast, “poor” mental health-such as feeling overwhelmed by stress-can make even day-to-day life more difficult.

May is Mental Health Month, and the Mental Health Association of Morris County (MHAMC) is raising awareness of the role mental health plays in our lives by providing tips and resources to encourage good all-around hygiene. Our month-long awareness program illuminates ways of building social support, eating to promote one’s mental health, recognizing the signs of stress, and knowing when to reach out for help.

Just as Americans have learned there are lots of things they can do to reduce their risk of heart disease and other illnesses, MHAMC wants to help people learn what they can do, both to protect their mental health in tough times, but also to improve their mental well-being throughout their lives.

MHAMC services and programs support those living with persistent mental illnesses in Morris County, and their families. If you or someone close to you could benefit from a conversation, please call MHAMC now for Info and Referral, 973-334-3496. The Mental Health Association of Morris County provides opportunities for people living with mental illness to seek support, gain hope, and begin recovery.
