“Often times, just putting stressful feelings into words helps lift an emotional burden for someone. During Mental Health Awareness month of May, make time to volunteer at a shelter, hospital, or church’s grief centers.” - Mark Rosenberg, M.D.

HealthyAnswers.com reports that May is Mental Health Awareness month and that 1 in 4 people, or roughly 60 million people, in the United States have a diagnosed mental health disorder. They state that the goal of Mental Health America this month is a “call to action” of communities nationwide to facilitate healing of mental health disorders.
HealthyAnswers.com also cites that helping people with mental disorders heal involves removing stigmas, encouraging help seeking behavior, education about various common mental disorders, and making resources available for treatment. Many people do not seek help because they cannot afford it and do not have medical insurance to cover it.

These wounds can be hard to deal with and require support from loved ones and people in the community around them.”
