Blood pressure, pulse, respiration, temperature…

These are commonly known vital signs. But mental health is a vital sign that’s just as important.

When something is wrong with our mental wellness, it can affect our physical wellness too, such as higher blood pressure, weight gain or loss, shortness of breath and sleeplessness. Beyond the physical, mental health issues can affect relationships with family and friends, job performance and how we deal with life on a daily basis.

Just like any other ailment, it’s completely normal to see your healthcare provider if something is wrong. And similar to a physical check up each year, checking up on your mental wellness is vital to your health. Use the resources below to start you on your mental health journey.
