Just like physical health challenges, mental health challenges can take many forms. Every individual has unique experiences, personal traits, and responsibilities that affect their day-to-day activities. Sometimes balancing all the components of our lives can become too much — and that is okay. There are resources available to individuals who are seeking help or wanting to talk to someone.
