Well Being

Mental wellbeing includes things like our emotions and moods, feelings of satisfaction and fulfillment, the experiences that shape us as children, and whether we have more good mental health days than bad. SHIP works to support policies, systems, and environments that help ensure everyone can experience positive mental wellbeing.

Key Tips to remember

Social Connection

The U.S. Surgeon General has released an advisory calling attention to the public health crisis of loneliness, isolation, and lack of connection in the United States. Consider getting involved with a faith group, sports meetup, or other club that interests you!

Tobacco Treatment

Smoking and vaping can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Consider talking with a doctor, or visiting an online quit resource (such as My Life, My Quit) to improve feelings of anxiety and depression.

Healthy Eating and Mental Health

Your diet and you mental health are connected! Consider selecting healthier options to stabilize mood, feelings of hunger, and overall better mental health days.
