Mental Health Awareness Month
Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness.
During the month of May, the Gracepoint Foundation and behavioral health service providers all around the country raise awareness about mental health and educate our communities about mental illness. Each year we promote our services and programs and fight to end the stigma associated with mental illness so people are able to get the help they need.
Mental Health Month was established in 1949 to increase awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness in Americans' lives, and to celebrate recovery from mental illness.
Mental Health Month gives all of us a valuable opportunity to celebrate the tremendous strides our country has made in promoting mental health and increasing the public's knowledge that effective services and support are available.
Mental health is essential for a person's overall health. Prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can recover from mental disorders and live full and productive lives.
Throughout this month we ask YOU to please share information we post on our social media channels with your network of friends, family, and colleagues to help us end the stigma of mental illness and better educate our community. Thank you!
