Diversity Resources: Mental Health Awareness

This resource guide is sponsored by the Lander University Diversity Advisory Council.

Mental Health Awareness Month

 

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, which raises awareness for individuals living with mental or behavioral issues, and seeks to reduce the stigma that they experience. We suggest celebrating Mental Health Awareness month by understanding how stress impacts your body, developing your support network, and reaching out to friends or family members that you believe may be struggling.

The 2022 Mental Health America's theme for the Mental Health Month Toolkit is "Back to Basics." The goal is "to provide foundational knowledge about mental health & mental health conditions and information about what people can do if their mental health is a cause for concern." Visit the MHA website for more information on the Toolkit.
