January is Mental Wellness Month: Proactive Care for Your Mental Health
Mental Wellness Month aims to highlight the importance of mental wellness. The World Health Organization (WHO) describes mental wellness as “a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community”.
