May is Mental Health Awareness Month!
Mental Health Awareness Month was started in the United States
in 1949 by the Mental Health America organization

Each year millions of Americans face the
reality of living with a mental health condition
Learn more about mental health – educate yourself and others
See the person not the illness – strive to listen, and understand
Take action – spread the word, raise awareness, make a difference
