Mental health refers to:

  • How a child thinks, feels and acts when faced with life's situations.
  • It is how children look at themselves, their lives and the other people in their lives; evaluate the challenges and the problems; and explore choices.
  • This includes handling stress, relating to other children and adults, and making decisions.
