There seems to be much confusion surrounding mental health and mental illness. This year has been pretty challenging for most of us. And our mental health has been impacted like never before. Mental health and mental illness might appear to be the same but they are different!

If you would like to screen your personal mental health, you can find screenings here. Be honest. The more honest you are, the better are the chances that you will be able to detect where you are and receive the help that you need.
