It’s May!

This year we remember the effects of COVID-19 which impacted Hoosiers’ Mental Wellness. Not only has the past year exacerbated the negative effects of living with behavioral conditions, but it has also caused everyone to experience grief, stress, and anxiety. In order to eradicate the stigma attached to mental health conditions and addictive disorders, lets start the conversation! Please share how mental health has impacted you or a loved one’s life. Use the hashtag #MayisMentalHealthMonth or share what #MentalHealthFeelsLike and join our mental health warrior community! Every dollar raised this May will go towards Mental Health America’s programming to provide free and reduced fee services to better our behavioral health community in Indiana.
