Mental and Physical Wellbeing for Youth and Adults

Mental health affects physical health and vice versa.  These two components of health also influence other aspects of one’s quality of life, including academic and career success and spiritual development.

This is a powerful reason for adults and youth to consider individual strategies for improving their mental and physical wellness. 

This is also why it is critical for prevention and health specialists to help individuals and communities increase their wellness-promoting and protective behaviors along with addressing avoidance of health risks like substance misuse.

Essential wellness-enhancing behaviors for youth and adults include regular physical activity, adequate sleep and healthy nutrition.
