Mental Health Awareness Month
Date: May 1, 2020 12:00 AM - May 31, 2020 12:59 PM
May is Mental Health Awareness Month help break the stigma associated with mental health disorders by sharing a story to inspire those facing similar challenges

While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, everyone faces challenges in life that can impact their mental health. The good news is there are practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase resiliency - and there are ways that everyone can be supportive of friends, family, and co-workers who are struggling with life’s challenges or their mental health.

This May is Mental Health Month and Chesapeake Integrated Behavioral Healthcare is highlighting #Tools2Thrive - what individuals can do daily to prioritize their mental health, build resiliency in the face of trauma and obstacles, support those who are struggling, and work towards a path of recovery.

For each of us, the tools we use to keep us mentally healthy will be unique. But we want everyone to know that mental illnesses are real, and recovery is possible. Finding what work for you may not be easy but can be achieved by gradually making small changes and building on those successes. By developing your own #Tools2Thrive, it is possible to find balance between work and play, the ups and downs of life, and physical health and mental health – and set yourself on the path to recovery.
