Help and resources
Having good mental health is just as important as having a healthy body. It's important for all parts of life—family, friends, school, and work.
Good mental health is more than just not having a mental illness. Even when you have stress in your life, there are ways to be well.
If you have questions or need support, or you're supporting a young person's mental health, there are resources that can help. Choose a topic in the navigation to learn more.
If you or someone you know needs mental health support, help and distress lines are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If it's an emergency, call 911.
