About Mental Health
Mental illness isn’t a weakness or defect in character. It's as real an illness as heart disease or cancer, and responds just as well to treatment.
  Adults and Depression
Feeling sad, discouraged, or worried can be a sign of depression, but so can physical symptoms such as a change in sleep or appetite.
  Adults and Stress
Stress is a part of life. When it becomes chronic—because of a bad marriage or a taxing job—it can lead to short- and long-term health problems.
  Adults and Abuse
Domestic abuse often begins with threats, name calling, violence in the victim's presence, or damage to objects or pets.
  Adults and Alcohol
More than half of U.S. adults have a close family member who’s suffering from or who has battled alcoholism or alcohol abuse.
  For Your Well Being
Poor physical health can impair mental health—and mental health disorders, such as depression or anxiety, can affect physical health.
