Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Month!

May is Mental Health Month—a time dedicated to spreading awareness of mental health issues, stigmas, and support services. The goal: to enhance community support and quality of care for mental health needs so we all can live healthy, fulfilling lives.

Talking openly about mental health in both bad and good times signals to those around us:

  • It’s okay to have mental health issues.
  • It’s okay to talk about mental health with you.
  • It’s okay to ask for help.

This effort can literally save lives.

Help us spread the word! Share our hotline information and any of the graphics below via email, text, or social media for #MentalHealthMonth throughout May.
