May marks Mental Health Awareness Month, but keep this gentle reminder in mind that mental health is not an annual or monthly task, it is an ongoing daily process - and it is not always easy.
From its very definition, mental health involves the emotional, social, and physical aspects of us, and affects how we feel, think, and act. The most important thing to remember is that it is YOUR mental health journey, and not anybody else’s.
