What does Mental Health mean to you?

We all know how important words are – they are our way of communicating with each other, as well as a way of making sense of our internal and external experiences. In this safe, online

forum, share your experiences of what mental health means to you. For some, mental health may be understood to mean mental illness, while for others mental health is more connected with mental wellness. We look forward to hearing your words and perhaps finding ways of being encouraged and uplifted by each others’ experiences.
