The Mental Health Gym is based on the concept that mental health, like physical health, can be improved through attitude and skill development. Coming to our website is the equivalent of going to the gym—but without leaving your computer. Here you will find guidance, exercises, products—both free and inexpensive, and interactive blogs. Our goal is to teach, encourage, and interact with you so that we can all become emotionally healthier. Our guiding principle is that mental health is not a spectator sport; it is a process that is hard, easy, fun, challenging, frustrating, elusive, and rewarding. At The Mental Health Gym WE EMBRACE THAT PROCESS.
This is a website for people who seek to develop and improve upon their mental health. Just as a physical gym caters to all shapes, sizes, ages, and levels of physical health—united by the desire to get and stay healthier, The Mental Health Gym is designed for people who are committed to improving and maintaining a level of emotional functioning that permits personal growth, achievement, happiness, and the effective management of stress and challenges.

Type P Personality Form
The Mental Health Gym philosophy reflects the fact that basic personality can be changed at any age if a person is motivated to change. Our belief is that the healthiest personality evolves as a result of continuing growth and change in 5 areas that start with the letter P. The healthy personality is: Personal Goal-Driven; Positive; Proactive; Persistent; and Playful. Commit yourself to growing and changing in these areas, and as you do so you will experience a 6th P: PRIDE.
