May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

For more than 20 years, this month has been recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as Mental Health Awareness Month. This is a time for all of us to increase awareness about the importance of mental health in overall health. It is also a time to share resources to ensure everyone in our communities knows where and how they can receive help in times of trouble. 

That said, did you know that SAMHSA has a variety of resources for families of individuals coping with mental and substance abuse disorders? These materials include information on how to start a conversation about mental health struggles, and how anyone can help connect their loved one with the help they need.
