May is Mental Health Awareness Month

It's ALWAYS a good time to start working on your mental health! Mental Health America is proud to have founded in 1949 what is now known as Mental Health Month. Every May, millions of Americans come together to continue the tradition of promoting awareness, offering vital resources and education, and advocating for the mental health and well-being of everyone. 

Greater New Guide encourages everyone to engage in conversations and active involvement in learning, advocating, and taking action to improve our Mental Health!
