May is Mental Health Month 2021
This year marks MHA's 72nd year celebrating Mental Health Month!
Since 1949, Mental Health America (MHA) and affiliates across the country have led the observance of Mental Health Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings. We welcome other organizations to join in spreading the word that mental health is something everyone should care about by using MHA's May is Mental Health Month toolkit materials and conducting awareness activities.
In 2021 MHA will continue the theme of Tools 2 Thrive for Mental Health Month as mental health advocates strive to provide individuals with information and coping strategies around common struggles that affect mental health - especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The toolkit will be available for download in mid-March. If you would like to be notified by email about the Mental Health Month toolkit and other resources created by MHA, you can sign up on their website.
