Consequence to poor mental health: It is important to keep your mind active and social, as it will help you fight mental diseases like depression and loneliness.
Prevention: Staying involved with a community, and being involved in everyday chores are great ways to preserve good mental health. Eating a balanced diet and regular exercise are also great solutions.
