What is a mindset?

Your mindset is a collection of thought patterns and beliefs that shape your view
of reality. It develops from our experiences, observations, thoughts, feelings and
concepts we learn from our family, friends, school, the media and other sources
of influence around us. There is a strong connection between your mindset and
your mental health. It helps determine how your experiences will affect you. The
same events can happen to different people, and everyone will react differently,
depending on their mindset. For example, all students experience stress, whether
from home, school or in their relationships but only some students develop anxiety,
depression, or other mental health problems from the same stress.
