The importance of Mental Health

Your emotional, psychological and social well–being are reflected in your mental health. How we feel, think and act is also influenced by our mental health.

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” (Albus Dumbledore).

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward” (Martin Luther King Jnr).
