Mental Health Month

Mahaska Health Partnership Recognizes Mental Health Month

The month of May is recognized as Mental Health Month and Mahaska Health Partnership wants you to understand the importance of mental wellness.

This year’s theme for Mental Health Month is Pathways to Wellness and calls attention to strategies and approaches that help all Americans achieve good mental and overall health. Mental Health America (MHA), one of the main affiliates of Mental Health Month, states that mental wellness is more than just the absence of disease.

“Being mentally well involves complete general, mental and social well-being,” MHP Director of Behavioral Health Services Jan LeBahn explained. “Our overall health and well being is tied to the balance between our emotional, physical, spiritual and mental health.”

LeBahn said everyone is at risk for stress given the demands life brings and the challenges at work and home. According to MHA, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, feeling a sense of self-worth and developing coping skills can all promote mental wellness.

“Just as we check our blood pressure and have health screenings, it’s a good idea to check on our emotional well being too,” LeBahn shared. “Fully embracing the concept of wellness not only improves health in the mind, body and spirit, but also maximizes your potential to lead a full and productive life.”

If you feel as though your mental health may not be in great shape, feel free to contact MHP Behavioral Health Services to have an emotional check-up. MHP’s experienced psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, social workers and counselors are available to help you and can be reached by calling 641.672.3159.
