Mental Health Month promotes sharing and better understanding

"What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when you bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.” - Henry David Thoreau

Learn more about mental health and participating in Mental Health Month through social media here.

Each year, 1 in 5 Americans deals with something misunderstood by many: mental illness. The 2016 Mental Health Month campaign in May is focused on bringing out into the world what mental illness feels like within. When people understand mental illness, it can remove the stigma so more people can get the help they need. This could be prevention services for all, early help for those at risk and the best care and treatment for those who need it. When this happens, the wonderful possibility – the “miracle” – of a full and productive life can be real. Note that half of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by the age of 14. Learn more from the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

This month also promotes mental health for everyone. Mental health 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 choices.
