Saira Kalia, MD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Associate Program Director Psychiatry Residency Program, Medical Director of Adult Outpatient Psychiatry ClinicMental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act as we cope with life. We seek mental health assistance for ourselves or our families; for relationship issues; for feeling consistently uncomfortable or on edge; for personal tragedy; depression; and many other reasons. Behavioral concerns can affect everyday life, creating additional burdens, which can over time worsen without help. Your mental health is as important as your physical health. There are ways to protect or improve your mental well-being, you just have to know where to start. We are here to help.
