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.

It’s OK to have a mental illness — many people do.

It’s OK to not be OK. You are not alone, and you deserve to feel better.

It’s OK to talk about mental illness — talking makes people feel less alone. Ending mental illness stigma starts with understanding.

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.
