Every May, we come together to combat stigma, provide support, and educate the public on mental health issues for Mental Health Month.
To help generate awareness, Mental Health America (MHA) releases a handy toolkit every year packed with fact sheets, shareable images for social media, and a call to action. This year, MHA’s theme is #Tools2Thrive — focusing on what individuals can do daily to prioritize their mental health, build resiliency in the face of trauma and obstacles, support those who are struggling, and work toward a path of recovery.
You can download the toolkit, plus other available resources to support mental health awareness, by using the links below. We will update this post with more resources as we gather them.
