Your emotional health affects your physical health. How you manage stress, cope with problems, handle difficult people or deal with day-to-day issues are keys to good emotional health. Individuals who are emotionally healthy are aware of their feelings and their behaviors. Many studies show that poor emotional health can have an impact on your physical health. Everyone feels sad or down sometimes. If you or a loved one has overwhelming feelings of despair that last more than a few weeks, depression may be the cause. When people face serious problems, like mental illness, chronic disease, divorce, death of a love one or financial hardships, they can experience severe depression and thoughts of suicide. It’s important for everyone to know there are many treatment options for depression. For those that are feeling overwhelmed or hopeless, there are solutions and professionals to help in a matter of minutes.
