A Message on Mental Health Month....
It is hard to believe it is May, particularly since we have been digging out of snowstorms of late, yet it is spring and also an important month for those of us working, advocating and supporting mental health.
Although we do this every day, the month of May is designated as a time for us to pay special attention to our mind health. We take this opportunity to help raise awareness, respond to stigma and to assure our communities there are resources available to understand and treat mental illness.
As our new name suggests, AllHealth Network recognizes the importance and value of mind and body health, and how integrating care can provide for our clients and their families a whole health approach that is accessible and complete. And as we acknowledge this as Mental Health month, we encourage our clients, friends, families and community members to pay attention and reach out if you are in need, or know someone in need of services and support.
As this month begins, we will be sharing stories, insights, and some tips to help as we all experience caring for our own mental health and stand by those who are near and dear to us, and in our community. We have included some statistics below to begin the discussion.
I encourage you to pass on your own commitment to dismantling stigma, supporting access to care, and creating an environment where mental health conversation is elevated to be a bigger and broader community dialogue.
