Many people have mental health concerns from time to time.But a mental health concern becomes a mental illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect your ability to function.  A mental illness can make you miserable and can cause problems in your daily life, such as at work or in relationships.

Children's Mental Health:Parents: You know your child best. Talk to your child's health care professional if you have concerns about the way your child behaves at home, in school, or with friends.

Mental health is important to overall health. Because of the impact on children, families, and communities, children's mental disorders are an important public health issue in the United States.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency(CVI) is a long-term (chronic) condition in which the veins have problems sending blood from the legs back to the heart'

Chronic Venous Insufficiency(CVI): When your leg veins cannot pump enough blood back to your heart, you have chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). It is also sometimes called chronic venous disease, or CVD.

Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when the leg veins do not allow blood to travel back to the heart. (Arteries carry blood away from the heart, while veins carry blood to the heart). Problems with valves in the veins can cause the blood to flow both directions, not just toward the heart. These valves that are not working properly can cause blood in the legs to pool.
