Mental Wellness Program

What is Mental Wellness?

Mental health means a lot more than the absence of health – it takes in all areas of an individual’s life.  Mental health is the presence of factors that promote and maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance.

It is being in charge of your choices.
