May Awareness Month
This month of May celebrates National Stroke Awareness Month, National Blood Pressure Month, Mental Health Awareness Month, National Mobility Awareness Month, and Maternal Mental Health Month.
Mental Health Month raises awareness of trauma and the impact it can have on the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of children, families, and communities.
Mental Health Month was established in 1949 to increase awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness in Americans’ lives, and to celebrate recovery from mental illness. Mental health is essential for a person’s overall health. Prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can recover from mental disorders and live full and productive lives.
