Mental Health Awareness

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and the 2024 theme is “Take the Moment.” The National Alliance on Mental Illness Take the Moment campaign encourages us to foster open dialogues, cultivate empathy and understanding and to share resources to support individuals and families on their journey towards mental wellness. This campaign also champions the importance of destigmatizing mental health by normalizing the practice of taking moments to prioritize mental health care without guilt or shame.

Mental health issues span a broad range of conditions. Depression and anxiety are conditions many people are dealing with, some for the first time. If you are experiencing any of these, talk with your primary care physician. It is also important to talk to friends and family if you have concerns. No one should have to deal with it alone. One way to check in with yourself is to take a mental health screening test. It’s a quick, free and private way for someone to assess their mental health. If you are in crisis call 911 for immediate help.
