If you are in pain anywhere, or if you feel bad and throw up, you know it is time to seek help and see a doctor. But our physical health is not the only thing we should look out for. Mental health is just as important. Mental health affects everything in your life from the way you manage your relationships with others and yourself, to the effectiveness with which you do everyday tasks. While it may have been taboo to discuss mental health, the conversation is fittingly finally here. A survey by the Pew Research Center found that seven out of ten teenagers see anxiety and depression as major problems in their peers. If you feel that something is wrong with your emotional health, it will only help to seek advice from a professional. Mental health is something anyone can struggle with. Even celebrities join the conversation. This is how some celebs have dealt with fear with their own struggles.
