May is Mental Health Month!
May is Mental Health Month began in 1949 to raise awareness of mental health conditions and mental wellness for all. According to Mental Health America, this year there are two important issues being addressed through two themes:
Do More for 1 in 4 is a call to action to help the 1 in 4 American adults who live with a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition and the fact that they can go on to live full and productive lives.
The second theme, Live Well! It's Essential for Your Potentiall, focuses on the importance of mental wellness and the steps everyone can take to improve their well-being and resiliency in the face of difficult times and challenges.
