Mental health and immunity are closely linked. Mental health issues like stress, anxiety, and depression can weaken the immune system. Stress can suppress immunity.

The COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation and unhealthy lifestyle choices contribute to weaken the immune system. Taking care of both mental and physical well-being is essential for maintaining a strong immunity.

Taking Action
for your Health

Overall, the Latino community does not talk about mental illness. Some Latinos don't even seek treatment because they do not know the signs and symptoms of mental illness or know where to find help. Others fear of being "labeled" crazy and being shamed for seeking help.

 

Let's end the stigma and seek help when needed!
