What are the Factors That Influence Mental Health?

Actors can affect how we feel in our heads in different ways. When we see different kinds of people on screen, it can make us feel like we belong. But if they show things in a bad way, it might make us feel left out. Sometimes, actors show good things and talk about how to be healthy, and that can make us want to be healthier too. 

But if they do things that are not good, it can make us feel bad. When they show mental health struggles in a real way, it can help us understand and not feel ashamed to ask for help. But if they get it wrong, it might make people think the wrong things. Some actors use their fame to talk about mental health, and that’s good. 

But sometimes, being famous can be hard, and it can make both actors and fans struggle with their mental health. Lastly, when actors perform, it can be fun and help us forget our problems. But if it makes us believe in things that are not real or impossible, it can make us feel bad about ourselves.
