May is Mental Health Awareness Month

1 in 5 people will have some kind of mental illness in a given year. Stigma is the greatest barrier to individuals seeking help regarding their mental illness.  Now, more than ever before, many of us could be feeling increased anxiety, stress or loneliness following a year of living with the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is OK to not be OK right now.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and serves as a great opportunity for our community to begin eliminating stigma by starting conversations and increasing understanding about mental illness.  By breaking down the stigma around mental illness, we can support those who are struggling to find the resources and treatment they deserve.
