What is mental health?
We all have mental health. Mental health is about our feelings, our thinking, our emotions and our moods. Looking after our mental health is important.
We all have small feelings every day: These sometimes feel strong and overwhelming, whether happy or sad, but they go away before too long.
Sometimes we experience big feelings: These feel strong and overwhelming for a long time. They stop us doing what we want to in our lives.
