May is Mental Health Awareness Month

According the the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), “Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 1949 to increase awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness in Americans’ lives and to celebrate recovery from mental illness. For the past 20 years, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has recognized Mental Health Awareness Month (MHAM) every May to increase awareness about the vital role mental health plays in our overall health and well-being.”

SAMHSA is a great resource with a ton of information. Visit their Mental Health Awareness Month page for more information.
