In the U.S., 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 youth (ages 6 - 17)  experience a mental health condition each year

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to highlight the mental health issues impacting millions of lives. Mental Health America began this awareness month in 1949 and they continue to raise awareness every year. This year's theme is "Tool 2 Thrive." It focuses on providing practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase their resiliency regardless of their personal situation. Even if you don't have a diagnosed mental health condition, you can still take steps to improve your mental health! Mental Health America has chosen the following themes to focus on this year: ​

  • Adapting after trauma and stress

  • Dealing with anger and frustration

  • Getting out of thinking traps

  • Processing big changes

  • Taking time for yourself

  • Radical acceptance
