This guide presents basic information about mental health, and strategies for developing good habits that promote health and well-being; mental illness and mental or emotional crisis situations; some "first aid" that we can do to help people who seem to be struggling or needing help, and contact info for hotlines and local organizations that provide help and support. See the tabs at left for each section of information on each of those topics.
