Your Mental Health Matters

1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental difficulties each year

Mental health awareness is hugely important as it includes includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.

By talking about mental health and focusing on awareness, we have the opportunity to reduce stigmatization around mental health and emphasize that as the World Health Organization states, “there is no health without mental health.” Every person, regardless of where they are on their mental health journey, are deserving of support, respect, fulfillment, and resources.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Take the Moment

Since its inception in 1949, Mental Health Awareness Month has been a cornerstone of addressing the challenges faced by millions of Americans living with mental health conditions. Throughout May, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) actively participates in this national movement, dedicated to eradicating stigma, extending support, fostering public education and advocating for policies that prioritize the well being of individuals and families affected by mental illness.

This year, NAMI is celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month with the “Take the Moment” campaign. We encourage you to join us in fostering open dialogues, cultivating empathy and understanding. Our goal is to support individuals and families on their journey towards mental wellness.
