Dumfries and Galloway College
We all have mental health, and it is just as important as our physical health. Mental health can be simple things such as feeling well and not well.
Mental health is how we feel and what we do, which is always changing.
When we feel good, we can enjoy being with others and wanting to take part in activities. But when we are struggling, we will start to become tired more quickly, meaning our moods and ourselves become not what we think.
