Mental health plays an important role in your overall well-being. An estimated 19.6 percent of Americans ages 18 and older-about one in five adults-will experience mental health problems this year. But studies show that most people with mental problems get better, and many recover completely.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Over the course of your life, you may experience mental health problems. Your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:
o Life experiences, such as trauma or a history of abuse
o Biological Factors, such as genes or chemical imbalances in your brain o family history of mental health problems
Taking care of one’s mental health is just as important as taking care of one’s physical health. Overall health includes a well-balanced and nutritious diet, regular exercise, stress management, early and ongoing mental health services when needed, and taking time to relax and enjoy family and friends. Finding a good balance between work and home is important to mental and physical health. (SAMSHA 2019)
In 2019 the Northwest Food Coalition celebrated it’s 25th Anniversary. It began in 1994, organized by the Hunger Action Coalition of Detroit that reached out to 7 groups around the state to assess hunger and poverty in rural Michigan. Today, we are a grassroots coalition of roughly 70 food pantries, emergency meal sites, baby pantries in a six county region: Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Wexford. We are the last food coalition left in Michigan. Our mission is is to empower member food programs by coordinating and creating resources to achieve regional food security.

"I was hit by a drunk driver, from which I was diagnosed with a closed head injury which gives me memory problems. After a divorce, I turned to the Traverse House Clubhouse where the staff and membership have helped me believe in myself again." ~ Stephany M.
