Let's talk about mental health

Managing your mind

A broken spirit is just as real as a broken bone

Emotions are part of the human experience, but feelings or mood changes can be difficult to manage. Ask yourself a few questions. Do you have trouble focusing on daily tasks? Have you experienced a loss of interest in activities you used to like? Do you drink or smoke when you feel down? Find out if you may need support.

Hope is Here

It's okay to ask for help — you're not alone

More than 45 million adults in the U.S. have a mental health condition.1 Whether this applies to you or not, it’s important to think about how you cope with stress. Your mental health doesn’t just affect your mind, or the way you feel. It can have physical outcomes, too.

  • More than half of U.S. citizens will be diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their life.²

  • Forty percent of people with depression are at higher risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.³
