Taking Care of Your Mental Health
(KUTV) A new study says you should get your brain checked as often as you have a physical.

British researchers at the University of Cambridge say you should treat your brain like any other organ in your body.  Just like working out to stay physically fit, it’s also important to keep your brain fit.

Common mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety are easily treat, if caught early.  According to psychologist Diane Ellis, “it’s much easier, much quicker and people don’t have to have the misery that they might have if things are caught later.”

The study recommends asking for a mental health screening when you get your checkup.  The National Institute of Mental Health Reports 26% of American Adults suffer from some sort of mental illness each year.
