My 1st is just around the corner, so I just wanted to direct your attention to the fact that May is the month dedicated to educating people about mental illness and also to direct those needing help about how to go about getting help.
MENTAL HEALTH MONTH 2012
Mental Health America is proud to continue its tradition of celebrating "May is Mental Health Month," which began in 1949 to raise awareness of mental health conditions and mental wellness for all.
This year, we are addressing these important issues through two themes:
Do More for 1 in 4 is a call to action to help the 1 in 4 American adults who live with a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition and the fact that they can go on to live full and productive lives. Download the Do More For 1in4 Toolkit.
The second theme, Healing Trauma's Invisible Wounds, focuses on the impact of traumatic events on individuals and communities. It centers around asking the person-based question: "What happened to you?" Download the Healing Trauma's Invisible Wounds Toolkit.
