The goal of May Mental Health Month is to increase awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness in Americans' lives, and recognize the role we provide in developing coping skills as we build resiliency in ourselves and others. May Mental Health Month allows us to set aside time and space in our calendar to focus on our own mental health and wellbeing and that of our learners.   
  
This collection is intended to introduce resources for key areas of work as we seek to provide and receive support towards thriving.   
  
These areas include:  

  • Ending & Addressing Stigma   
  • Recognizing Signs and Symptoms   
  • Tips and Strategies for Supporting Yourself and Others 
  • Promoting Resiliency and Recovery
