Not everyone has mental health concerns, but we all have mental health.

Staying mentally healthy can take many forms, from exercise, to talking with friends and family to seeking out a counselor or doctor. One of the greatest signs of strength is asking for support when you need it.

The How Are You, Really? tools were created to increase awareness of mental health in our community. However, the only way they will work is if people like you share them where you live, work, play and worship.

Together, we can help our loved ones and ourselves stay mentally well.
