Mental Health Month 2018

Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being, and mental illnesses are common and treatable. So much of what we do physically impacts us mentally.
Paying attention to both your physical health and your mental health can help you achieve overall wellness and set you on a path to recovery.
A healthy lifestyle can help to prevent the onset or worsening of mental health conditions, as well as heart disease, diabetes, obesity and other chronic health problems. It can also help people recover from these conditions.
Getting the appropriate amount of exercise benefits nearly all aspects of a person’s health. Not only does exercise help control weight, it also improves mental health, and chances of living longer and healthier.
Stress has a huge impact on our lives and can make even day-to-day life difficult. Research shows that stress is closely linked to high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. It also shows that people who feel depressed or chronically stressed may have a greater risk of physical illnesses.

FAQs

Both parents are Local 689 members. Can both parents cover the child on different plans?

No. The parents need to decide which one of them will cover the child. In cases involving a Qualified Medical Child Support Order (QMCSO), the county Child Services Agency may need to be informed. See the Enrolling for Coverage page for more information.
