Mental Health Month: Get Connected

Mental Health Month was
created more than 50 years ago to raise awareness about mental health
conditions and the importance of mental wellness for all.  This year’s
theme is focused on an essential component of maintaining and
protecting mental health and wellness: social connectedness. The
tagline for this year’s observance is “Get Connected.” There are many
ways of creating connections that support mental health:

  • Get connected to family and friends to feel close and supported.
  • Get connected to your community to feel a sense of belonging and purpose.
  • Get connected to professional help to feel better when you’re stressed and having trouble coping.

On
this website you will find materials and tools to learn more about the
role of social connectedness in promoting and protecting mental health
and help you spread messages about the importance of mental health and
wellness during May is Mental Health Month.
