Since 1949, Mental Health America and its affiliates across the country have led the observance of May is Mental Health Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings. This year is expanding upon last year’s theme of #4Mind4Body and taking it to the next level, to explore the topics of animal companionship (including pets and support animals), spirituality, humor, work-life balance, and recreation and social connections as ways to boost mental health and general wellness. The toolkit includes social media messages, fact sheets and more.
