What is Mental Health?

 

The Mental Health Continuum

We all have mental health. Understand yours.

To understand your mental health, consider that it is on a continuum that ranges from good mental health and wellness at one end to poor mental health and illness at the other.


Mental Health is fluid, meaning you can move along the scale depending upon how stressed you are. 

Gravy Banana Mental Health Services provides support across the whole range of the continuum and our therapy packages have been designed to meet the particular mental health needs at each stage. We have therapy packages for maintaining wellness or treating illness. If you are not after a therapy package, our annual mental health check ups help to support mentally wellness.
