May Is Mental Health Month: Denver Indian Health And Family Services

Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being, and mental illnesses are common and treatable.

So much of what we do physically impacts us mentally. Paying attention to both your physical health and your mental health can help you achieve overall wellness and set you on a path to recovery. Living a healthy lifestyle may not be easy but can be achieved by gradually making small changes and building on those successes.

By looking at your overall health every day – both physically and mentally – you can go a long way in ensuring that you focus on your Fitness #4Mind4Body.
