This lesson provides a definition of mental health and discusses the reasons sisters do not seek help for mental health challenges. The goal is to allow sisters to explore their current thoughts and feelings about mental health, while offering a clear definition for them to build a positive foundation of understanding. The first step in getting someone to access help or to accept treatment is learning why she may be resistant. Every mental health challenge is different for each person.


  • State a correct definition of mental health.
  • Identify personal barriers to seeking help, explore the sources of those and work on how to address them.
