May is Mental Health Awareness Month and is an opportunity to learn both about mental health as part of overall health and the need to be alert to symptoms of mental illness. Mental health affects thought processes, relationships, productivity and the ability to adapt to changes in circumstances or cope with adversity. Early identification and treatment can make a big difference for successful management of a condition.
Please join us in celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month by participating & sharing our May Calendar of Events and starting a mental health conversation with your loved ones! Help end the silence and stigma around mental illness that discourages people from getting help. This is a month to make a difference in our communities.
Event Update: The Bridges of Hope half day conference for clergy members of all faiths has been cancelled. We hope to offer this event in October. If you’re interested in attending, please contact us and we will be sure to notify you as we get closer to October.
