What's Mental Health?
In the past, mental health was rarely discussed. It was seen as a private or even embarrassing issue, and anyone with a mental illness was generally expected to keep it a secret. Today, however, many people have recognized the benefits of being open and honest about mental health. Through informative fact boxes, helpful graphic organizers, and engaging text, readers learn the basics about what mental health means. This allows them to become cognizant of the state of their own mental health, and helps them to effectively support loved ones who may be dealing with serious issues.
