|Launched in 1949 by Mental Health America (MHA), May is Mental Health Month is the most highly recognized mental health awareness event in the nation. Each year, tens of thousands of organizations choose to use our official May is Mental Health Month materials. The materials reach millions of people with messages of health, wellness, prevention, and recovery. In 2021, we will continue with our theme of Tools 2 Thrive, providing practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase their resiliency regardless of their personal situation. If you haven’t downloaded our 2021 toolkit, you can still access the toolkit as well as share web versions of the fact sheets.
|The toolkit includes sample materials for communications and social media as well as printable handouts on the following topics: Adapting after trauma and stress Dealing with anger and frustration Getting out of thinking traps Processing big changes Taking time for yourself Radical acceptance MHA’s public education efforts are possible because of passionate mental health advocates like you, and we are so grateful for your support. Through research, advocacy, and outreach, we have educated, informed, and reached millions of individuals in our 111-year history.
