CVS Health® stands for mental health

A young woman, enjoying a cup of tea, gazes out of a window.

Like physical health, mental health and well-being is something we all work at maintaining. Everyone faces challenges in life. For some, it's dealing with daily stress or mild anxiety, for others it's coping with substance use disorders, and for those most in need of critical care, it's thoughts of suicide.

All of these moments deserve our attention and care.

We know the path to mental well-being is not always an easy one to follow. Between challenges like navigating the health care system and a society that can make people feel ashamed about seeking help, getting started can be hard. But no matter where you or your loved ones are on your mental health journey, CVS Health can help.

CVS Health® and Aetna Resources for LivingSM, a CVS Health company, have developed the following targeted resources for parents and young adults to support their own mental health and help start the conversation with others.

If you need urgent help or are thinking about suicide, know someone who is, or need to talk with someone, we encourage you to immediately call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255). Or text HOME to the Crisis Text Line at 741741 to connect with a crisis counselor.
