A Message From Our President - May 2022
It’s Mental Health Awareness Month in the U.S., focusing on improving the understanding of mental health issues and reducing the stigma. We believe this conversation is a needed and fundamentally important one. That is why prioritizing the mental health of each and every member of our team is essential.
Awareness and treatment are key for maintaining your mental health
National Mental Health Month provides an opportunity to bring awareness to the limits of access to mental healthcare, the growing number of people experiencing symptoms, and the importance of advocacy. May is also a time to focus on understanding our own personal mental health. It is estimated that as few as half of those who experience a mental illness receive treatment.
