MAY IS MENTAL HEALTH MONTH

Since 1949, May is observed as Mental Health Month, spread the word that mental health is something everyone should care about.  Now more than ever, it is critical to reduce the stigma around mental health struggles, because stigma often prevents individuals from seeking help.
