DMHAS: May Mental Health Month

May Is Mental Health Month 2018
 

This year for May is Mental Health Month, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is "Cure Stigma". One in 5 Americans is affected by mental health conditions. Stigma is toxic to their mental health because it creates an environment of shame, fear and silence that prevents many people from seeking help and treatment. The perception of mental illness won’t change unless we act to change it.

Throughout May, NAMI and participants across the country are raising awareness for mental health. Each year, we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Each year, the movement grows stronger.

Help us spread the word through the many awareness, support and advocacy activities below by showing you're #CureStigma.
