Mental health involves our psychological, emotional, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

The main causes of mental health disorders include:

  1. Biological factors (e.g. genes or brain chemistry)
  2. Life experiences (e.g. trauma or abuse)
  3. Family history of mental health problems

People with mental health problems can get better, and most recover completely. The key is to seek help from a professional, and to build a good circle of support.
