May is National Mental Health Awareness Month

Thriving or Surviving???

Since 1949, Mental HealthAmerica and affiliates across the country have led the observance of May is Mental Health Awareness Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings.

During May, NAMI and the rest of the country are also raising awareness of mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.  For resources, click here

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from May 18-24, 2020. The theme is ‘kindness’. We want to use the week to celebrate the thousands of acts of kindness that are so important to our mental health. And we want to start a discussion on the kind of society we want to shape as we emerge from the coronavirus pandemic. click here
