May is Mental Health Month
May is Mental Health Month in the US, and May 4 – 10th is Mental Health Week in Canada. It’s a fitting time for individuals, organizations, businesses, and governments to learn more about mental health, and reflect on how we can all better respond to the issues.
There are great toolkits available from both Mental Health America and the Canadian Mental Health Association that can help your organization celebrate these events while also spreading awareness, education, and reducing the prejudices and stigma that surround the topics of mental health and mental illness.
