Take Care of Your Mental Health
As an annual observance, Mental Health Month brings an increased awareness to mental health issues and mental illness. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) says, “This year’s theme, Mental Health Matters: In Your Life, reminds Americans that caring for their mental health is as important as taking care of their physical health because mental health impacts all areas of life.”
Mental health issues can include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and many other diseases that can negatively impact every part of someone’s life. During this presidentially proclaimed observance, the goal is to reinvigorate the United States’ determination and effort to addressing mental health problems in America.
You can find treatment services near you for a variety of mental health issues by calling 1-800-662-HELP. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline offers immediate assistance for all Americans, including service members and veterans, at 1-800-273-TALK.
