What is mental health?
Mental health affects our overall well-being; how we think, feel, and act. Mental health also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.

Improving mental health is possible.
Just like physical health, there are many ways we can keep mentally healthy. At Lambton Public Health, in connection with our community partners, we want to enable individuals and families, organizations, and our entire community to have the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to be mentally healthy.
Lambton Public Health works to promote mental health with our community partners via upstream approaches.
