Mental Health Month & Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week is Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Month! Across Howard County and the country, this month is used to raise awareness, offer vital resources and education, and advocate for the mental health and well-being of everyone. This year’s theme is Where to Start: Mental Health in a Changing World. The world around us is constantly changing – for better or for worse – and it can be overwhelming to deal with everything going on around you. While some are getting more comfortable discussing mental health, it can still be hard for others to know “Where to Start” when it comes to taking care of your own well-being. Find what you need here!

Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, is May 5-11, 2024. We use this week to raise awareness about children’s mental health and encourage people to commit to improving the mental wellbeing of children. Visit the Children’s Mental Health Matters website for more information.
