May awareness

May marks Mental Health Awareness Month and Children's Mental Health Awareness Week. The main objectives during this period include reducing stigma, providing support, educating the public, and advocating for policies that impact millions of individuals in the United States. According to the Surgeon General, approximately one in five children has a diagnosable mental illness. By working together, we can bring about significant change and emphasize the significance of mental health for both adults and children. Below, you will find toolkits, resources, and other valuable information to assist in launching a successful campaign to raise awareness for this important month.
