ASSESSMENTS1. What is mental health? Why does it matter to advocate and address mentalhealth issues?Mental health refers to behavioral, emotional, and cognitive well-being. Itis a term that describes how people think, feel and act, and it can have an impact on aperson's daily life, physical health, and relationships. Mental health reveals anddetermines how a person copes with stress, interacts with others, and makes decisions.Advocating for mental health is one way to raise awareness about this increasinglycommon problem. It is essential to help raise awareness about mental health issuesand to ensure that we can understand the suffering of those who suffer from mentalillnesses. It must be addressed because discrimination against them continues to exist,and we must de-normalize it. More people will be aware of the issues that can affectthem or their families, and the stigmas associated with mental health will hopefully fadeaway.
