In every community across the U.S. , people have been impacted by mental health. They have either worked or lived with or cared for someone who has or has experienced a mental health condition or are experiencing it themselves. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused additional challenges for those who need or are seeking help. Take some time, throughout the month of May, to become better educated about mental health, show our appreciation of mental health professionals and caretakers, and highlight the needs of those experiencing mental health conditions.

Promote and attend these free webinars and events focusing on mental health.
