Mental Health Awareness Month
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and thank goodness for that! Our mental health is
being challenged in a huge way with the COVID-19 pandemic, on top of all of the regular stressors
and issues that we deal with on a daily basis.
Whether we have diagnosed mental illness or not, it is critical for us all to manage and support our
mental health. It matters so much! We must continue to talk about mental health, share our stories,
raise awareness, educate others, get help ourselves and give help when we can.
Let's start the conversation and work to end the stigma around mental illness so we can be there
for each other in ways that are real and meaningful.
If you are struggling please reach out for support.
