MAY IS MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH — Improving Life and Coping Skills

 

Supporting Health, Education, Awareness, and Advocacy Against the Stigma of Mental Health Illness

 

May is Mental Health Month. By reaching out to millions of people through the media, local events, and screenings, WellLife Network joins our partners in the health and human services field in spreading the word that mental health is something everyone should care about. Treatment and support are available for those who need it—and the door to "conversation" must always remain open.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of people of all ages. Now, more than ever, it is critical to reduce the stigma around mental health struggles, because that stigma often prevents individuals from seeking help. WellLife Fosters Communication and Trust WellLife Network offers a broad range of behavioral health services, including residential, care coordination, and clinical treatment services to some 25,000 individuals and families each year who face mental health challenges. WellLife also offers a wide array of services for individuals in need of developmental disabilities services; vocational training; and substance use and gambling addiction services.
