National Mental Health Awareness Month

May is a significant month as it marks National Mental Health Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness, educating communities, and advocating for support and understanding towards mental health challenges. It is a time to come together, break the stigma, and promote mental well-being for all individuals with compassion, empathy, and acceptance, creating a positive and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and supported on their mental health journey.

Your mental health matters. Mental health is just as important as physical health. Good mental health helps you cope with stress and can improve your quality of life. Get tips and resources from NIMH to help take care of your mental health. #shareNIMH


If you or someone you know has a mental illness, is struggling emotionally, or has concerns about their mental health, use these resources to find help for yourself, a friend, or a family member: #shareNIMH
