May is Mental Health Month

Created in the 1950s, May is Mental Health Month is a month long education campaign to educate the general public about mental health, mental wellness and the ways they can keep their minds healthy.

This campaign was started by Mental Health America and supported by many other grassroots organizations and professional associations to help the 1 in 4 adults who live with mental illness in a given year - and to educate loved ones and the general public about this serious, but treatable set of disorders. 

This year's 2016 theme is "How does it feel to live with a mental illness?"
