Positive mental health means feeling good about yourself and the world around you, and giving to others is a great way to accomplish that. Giving to others is a beautiful idea that shows kindness, empathy, and support. But there’s more to it than that. When we give to others, it can have a direct, positive impact on our mental well-being. Small acts of kindness towards others or doing something on a larger scale, such as volunteering at a local community shelter or food bank, can impart a sense of purpose and make us feel happier and more satisfied about life. Giving can take on many forms, such as lending a hand to strangers struggling with their grocery bags.

Plains Area Mental Health welcomes people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Our professionals collaborate with clients to create a plan which addresses specific needs and goals. A caring approach integrating evidence-based practices is designed to address life’s struggles effectively in a way that is also uniquely tailored to you and your family.

P.S. Well-being isn’t necessarily about our income, housing, cars, or jobs.
