Mental Health Awareness Month:

Welcome to May, Mental Health Awareness Month! The 2022 Back to Basics theme is centered around simply that, getting back to the foundational knowledge of mental health, and what to do when and if it becomes a cause for concern. This is an opportunity to really dig deep into your mental health and the options that are available to you to improve it if necessary. Mental illness does not define you, speak about your story, or help someone else feel comfortable speaking about theirs. Your feelings are valid, and it’s ok to not be ok.
