Everyone has 'mental health', just as we all have 'physical health'. And like our physical health, there are times when our mental health is better than others.
We all know prevention is better than cure.
Through our research-based mental health information and advice, and ongoing programmes and policy work, we want to help people look after their mental health, prevent more serious problems from developing and help everyone live mentally healthy lives.
