Mental health encompasses an individual’s emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Caring for our mental health is important and must become one of our priorities. Neglecting one’s mental health can have negative effects in many areas of life, including relationships, work or school performance, and overall quality of life.
To help us become better equipped in caring for our mental health, we list some factors that can negatively affect it:
- Excessive or Chronic Stress
Excessive or chronic stress can be detrimental to one’s mental health. Life events that are stressful, such as work pressures, relationship difficulties, financial problems, or major life transitions, can all contribute to increased stress and have an impact on mental well-being.
- Unhealthy Relationships
Relationships that are toxic or abusive, whether romantic, familial, or social, can have detrimental effects on one’s mental health. Emotional abuse, manipulation, or constant conflicts can contribute to feelings of depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety.
- Substance Abuse
Substance abuse, including alcohol and drug abuse, can have a negative impact on mental health. Substance use disorders frequently co-occur with mental health disorders and can contribute to the development of mental health disorders or worsen symptoms.
