Caring for Your Mental Health & Your Healthiest Self: Wellness Toolkits (National Institute of Mental Health, NIHM)


Caring for Your Mental Health (available in Spanish) includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, act, make choices, and relate to others. Mental health is more than the absence of a mental illness—it’s essential to your overall health and quality of life. Self-care can play a role in maintaining your mental health and help support your treatment and recovery if you have a mental illness.
