mental health awareness month

May is recognized as Mental Health Awareness month, a time to raise awareness and promote mental health education and resources. Mental health awareness is crucial because mental health issues affect a significant portion of the population and can impact a person's quality of life, relationships, and ability to function. Awareness helps reduce stigma, encourages people to seek help, and promotes understanding and empathy towards those struggling with mental health challenges. It also highlights the importance of mental health as an essential component of overall health and well-being. Here are some simple activities you can do to take care of your mental health:

  • Practice daily meditation or deep breathing exercises. 
  • Engage in physical activity, such as walking or yoga.
  • Connect with loved ones and spend time with people who uplift and support you.
  • Set aside time for yourself and engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation.
  • Practice gratitude by keeping a gratitude journal or writing down things you're thankful for.
