how to help spread awareness during mental health month 2018

What is Mental Health Month?

Since its inception in 1949, Mental Health Month is recognized every May in the U.S. with the goal of reducing the stigma associated with mental health.

To support this mission, Rogers is focused on spreading awareness, instilling hope, providing information on our treatment options, recognizing recovery, helping save lives, and shattering stigma. We invite you to join us in this endeavor throughout the month of May.

We’re also involved in several events throughout the month. Here are some that you should keep an eye on and look into attending to help us spread awareness.

We’re also sharing posts on social media throughout May, including inspirational stories, Mental Health America’s #4Mind4Body challenges, facts, info about Rogers, and more. Join the conversation by using the #4Mind4Body and #MentalHealthMonth hashtags.

We’re also attending a NAMI Walks in communities near our clinics. See if you have a NAMI Walk near you here. Additional events can be found on our Facebook page.
