Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental Health Month was established or first celebrated in 1949. Throughout the month of May each year– we strive to make sure mental health patients receive the right care, and know they are not alone in their fight. It is our hope that in doing this each year- mental health becomes more normalized so these things can be addressed daily. This May, we are focusing on the five ways to well-being connectedness- physical activity- awareness- learning- giving. There are many ways that you can observe mental health month or help support the cause:
- Take care of yourself
Life has numerous ups and downs. Some are solvable but others not so much. When your mental health acts up, go seek the right treatment and make yourself better because, after all, life has much more to offer than just pain and suffering.
- Take care of your loved ones
Check up on your friends and family. Many times, all we need is a shoulder to cry on and/or an ear to listen. Support and encourage them if they are being treated for any mental problems.
- Talk about mental health
One of the best ways to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month is by talking about it with your peers. The more you talk about it, the more normalized it will become. This is one of the aims of the Month itself as the stigma attached to mental health has led to countless delays in treatment AND research on the matter.
