Why Mental Health Month Matters


The Importance of Raising Awareness of Mental Illness

Ending this stigma, which makes so many people afraid to get help, is just one of the reasons it’s so important to raise awareness about mental health.

May is Mental Health Month, the perfect opportunity to spread the word that having a mental health condition is nothing to be ashamed of. You can start by sharing this infographic with your friends, family, and anyone else you can think of!
