May is Mental health awareness month, and it aims to raise awareness of mental health and reduce social stigma against these issues. This year's theme, "Mental Health is Health," emphasizes the importance of treating issues in this area with the same focus as the physical spectrum. Mental health problems are prevalent and can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or social status. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), approximately 1 in 5 adults in the United States experience mental illness each year.
This month provides an opportunity to promote mental health resources and encourage people to seek help. Here are five ways you can promote mental health for yourself and others starting this May:
Get informed: The first step to creating awareness is to get educated. You can do this by reading a book or blog or engaging with new information about mental health issues that speaks to you.
Raise Awareness: Open conversations about mental health with friends and family to help destigmatize talking about these issues. Share resources that are relevant to those around you.
Prioritize Self-Care: Practicing self-care is an essential part of maintaining good mental health. Engage in activities you enjoy and bring you energy.
Stay Connected: Stay connected with loved ones! A robust support system with friends and family can help improve mental health. If you do not count on a support system, take some time and energy to build connections with people who can listen and support you. This can include contacting a therapist or counselor or joining group therapy or a support group.
Advocate for Change: Vote and stay involved with policies around mental health. Supporting Mental Health Initiatives and Organizations can be another way to advocate for mental health issues.
Enrich Relationship Center of Colorado: Therapy services for Couples, Families, and Individuals.
Remember, you are not alone; many people struggle with mental health, and creating a safe space to talk about the struggles can be powerful for everyone involved. In addition, there are many places to get information and help if needed.
