What do they have in common? They’re all bringing attention and working to destigmatize mental illness.
 
May is recognized as Mental Health Month, a time intended to raise awareness and educate the public about the realities of living with mental illness and ways to achieve mental health and wellness. 
 
For many, mental illness is a term loaded with negative connotations, misconceptions, and stigma, which is what makes events like Mental Health Month so important. All month long, mental health care providers across the country will be sponsoring events to engage their communities in education and awareness building to better support individuals who are struggling with mental illness on their path to mental wellness.
