May Is Mental Health Awareness Month

The Mental Health Association of America website has a comprehensive list of information on COVID-19, from assistance with various mental health stressors created by the pandemic, to financial assistance to individuals, to government policies.

This year’s Mental Health Month theme, #Tools2Thrive, encourages individuals to take steps toward prioritizing mental health throughout all of life’s moments.

Local Mental Health Associations offer numerous peer support programs. My local MHA is able to accept up to 250 people for its peer run Zoom or Go To Meeting sessions, which include a women’s group and a Peer Cafe for older teens and college students. For more information.
