MAY is for Mental Health Awareness Month!
While the term “mental health” is one that is not new to most adults; the past two years have brought changes of great impact to society. That said, mental health challenges have risen for all ages, populations, and socioeconomic groups. Mental health needs have resulted in therapists being back logged to the point that appointments often require a long wait.
We have reached a point where we can identify mental health as having reached crises proportions. It is tantamount that we each become aware of what and how our own mental health is driven as well as that of our children who depend upon us. Let us each take particular notice this month of our personal “happiness barometers” so that we can then in turn tune in to that of our children’s.

Let us all take personal stock of “being kind to our minds” and celebrate awareness of mental health this month!
