    My definition of mental health as a youth:Mental health is the level of psychological well-being.It refers to behavioral, and emotional well-being. It is also an absence of Mental illness.

    Almost everyone experience mental health challenge. But the way we handle it differs.
    When I begin to feel bad/frustrated or think the world is against me, then I know I need to take care of my mental health.
    Through these ways:
    – I do things that make me happy.
    – I get a book and read, a good book that can motivate me.
    – I sleep.
    – I speak words of affirmation to myself.
    – I take a walk and see the beauty of creation.
    – I speak to someone.
    – sometimes,I withdraw from social media for a while.
