MENTAL HEALTH

DID YOU KNOW THE Y IS MEDICINE?

At the Y, we focus on healthy living in mind, body and spirit, which includes mental health. So what is mental health?

 

Mental health is how we THINK, FEEL, & ACT. In other words, how we are! What can the Y do to help your mental health?


  • Every time you work out, your body releases chemicals that help increase happiness and reduce stress.
  • Every time you get to know someone at the Y, you are boosting your sense of connection.
  • Giving back to the community increases a sense of purpose.
  • And so much more!
