General Health

Your general health is relevant to your mental health and important to take care of as you get better.

Consider a healthy diet, the fact that your immune system is compromised by stress and pain, that leisure time and laughter are part of health, that a balanced lifestyle is important to try and get back to, that family and parenting roles play a part, that activity/ sport and relaxation are all helpful resources for you.

The Immune system plays a big part in pain and distress, stress/ anxiety and depression.

How can you assist your mental health through maintaining or improving your general health? In many ways!!
