Check in with yourself to see if you need to take action for your mental health. Use self-care activities and other support options to give your mind and body the break they need to recharge. And get to know when it’s time to seek professional support for the challenges you’re facing.

Check in with your family, friends, and other people around you to see if they could use some support for their mental health. Just letting them know you’re there for them if they want to talk can make a big difference. And help them get support from other sources if they need more help.
