Seek help

Talk with your health care provider or a mental health professional if you believe you could be suffering from depression, anxiety, or another mental health problem. The sooner you seek help, the sooner you can return to wholeness.

“Having good mental health takes determination, commitment, and recognition of the things you can do to support it,” Dr. Keck says. “As is true of the body, it’s easier to prevent a mental illness than to cure one. Making choices everyday that strengthen your mental and emotional health is worth the effort.”
