Mental Health is Wellness!
Mental health is wellness! We should not ignore the connection between our mind and our body. Our mental wellness is just as essential as our physical wellness. Another way to put it is that our mental health is just as important as our physical health. You perform physical exercise using your body weight or external exercise equipment like the ones listed above to improve physical strength, endurance and flexibility. How do you manage, maintain, or improve your mental wellness? From a holistic point of view, total health must also include mental wellness. Below are suggested tools and resources to help improve mental wellness. The suggested tools and resources are not owned by, or affiliated with Broward College. Visit our Mental Health and Wellness page for Broward College student mental health resources.
