This lesson provides a definition of mental health and a new approach to how members can talk about their mental health. 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. Every mental health challenge is different for each person. It’s important to have a vocabulary that allows members to contemplate how they balance their lives and what they need for self-care.


  • 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.
  • Discuss the mental health spectrum.
