Mental Health Awareness Week
Saturday, May 16
The Behavioral Health Team will be celebrating Mental Health Awareness week this upcoming week, May 18-22, 2020. As most of you are aware, May is Mental Health Awareness Month, which is celebrated to raise awareness of those living with mental or behavioral health issues, and to help reduce the stigma so many experience. During this time, it is especially important for us to take care of ourselves and engage in activities that will support our emotional and physical health.
During Mental Health Awareness Week, your counselors and social workers will be sharing a variety of activities and resources for coping, self-care, and your overall wellness. Please make sure to check your email (daily) and be on the lookout for our mental health resources. We encourage you to participate in our activities and share any pictures or videos of what you've been doing for self-care. If you want to get creative, reach out to some friends and come up with your own mental health picture grid! (See image on main banner)
