Mental Health Awareness Month (also referred to as “Mental Health Month”) has been observed in May in the United States since 1949. This year’s theme is “More than Enough”.
It’s a good time to raise awareness of mental or behavioral health issues, to help reduce the stigma and to check in on those you feel may be struggling.
