Mental Health Awareness Month

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month and you may be wondering exactly what that means for you. It’s actually quite simple. You need to know three basic facts.

  1. Your mental health is as important as your physical health.
  2. Mental health conditions are common and treatable.
  3. You can address your mental health today.

It is important for you – and all Americans — to know that behavioral health is essential to health, that prevention works, that treatment is effective, and that people recover. National Mental Health Awareness Month gives us all the opportunity to combat the negative attitudes, prejudice, and discrimination that prevent people from accessing treatment and supports and isolate people from their communities.
