Working toward well-being. Together.

Mental and Emotional well-being is essential to overall health. Positive mental health allows people to realize their full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively, and make meaningful contributions to their communities. Early childhood experiences have lasting, measurable consequences later in life; therefore, fostering emotional well-being from the earliest stages of life helps build a foundation for overall health.

Prevention Strategies:

  • Promote positive early childhood development, including positive parenting and violence-free homes.

  • Facilitate social connectedness and community engagement across the lifespan.

  • Provide individuals and families with the support necessary to maintain positive mental well-being.

  • Promote early identification of mental health needs and access to quality services.

What can you do to promote well-being for you are your family?

  • Build strong, positive relationships with family and friends.

  • Become more involved in the community.

  • Encourage children and adolescents to participate in extracurricular and out-of-school activities.

  • Work to make sure children feel comfortable talking about problems and seeking assistance when needed.

  • Learn how to identify the signs of mental health disorders and how to refer people for help.

  • Encourage routine screening and early intervention for mental health disorders.

No matter who we are or where we live, we all share a basic concern for the safety and well-being of our young people. Their welfare is the most telling measure of our nation's success - and their potential is the most promising element of its future. It is up to us - all of us - to safeguard that future.
