May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we want to spread hope and help across CafeMom -- and beyond!

Mental illness affects 60 million Americans, 1 in 4 adults and 1 in 10 children, according to the National Aliance on Mental Illness.

First things first: Steal the siggy at the bottom of this post (see instructions underneath it) and use it as your own -- then everywhere you post, you’ll make Mental Health awareness known! 

Now you're ready to check out the activities we have going on right here in the group:

Then stay tuned for more cool stuff and chances to win prizes in the group, and be sure to sign up for the Mom Happiness Makeover and help CafeMom help YOU get happier!

Here's how to add a siggy to your posts:

  1. Copy the image above (the link to the group is already included)
  2. Go up to "my account" near the top of any page and choose "Account Settings" from the drop-down menu (you might be asked to enter your password)
  3. Click the "Fonts & Signatures" tab
  4. Scroll down to "Signatures" and choose "Add a Rich Text Signature"
  5. Type a name for your siggy, paste the image you copied from above into the posting box, and click "Add"
  6. You can then click on "Set as CafeMom default" under the signature if you'd like this to be your main signature
  7. Or, anytime you'd like to use the signature, click "Yes" below your post where it asks if you'd like to include a signature, and find the name of your siggy in the drop-down list

It is also Arthritis Awareness Month as well. Not trying to take away from it being mental health awareness month just that it doesn't get as much backing or support.
