If you are experiencing a crisis, call 911, 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or text 'START' to 741741.

 

We asked you to tell us what you think of when you hear the following words:

 

Physical Health

Mental Health

 

The results were pretty telling. The majority of people who answered the survey do not see a difference between Mental Health and Mental Illness. The two are looked at as equal. When it came to Physical Health, pretty much everything was positive, much more so than for Mental Health.

There is definitely a negative connotation when it comes to mental health. Maybe it is time we focus more on Mental Wellness and not Mental Health?
