Does everyone have a mental health issue?

I often say to my patients that if you have a brain or mind, then you will have some degree of a mental health issue.  It is a matter of how much.  Once we can recognize that all of us have a "mental health", just like all of us have a "physical health", then we will be more mindful about looking after it. In order for us to change the stigma of mental health, we need to change the way we think about the words, "mental health".

Mental health management or self care is not just for the few......It is for everyone!
