Mental Health Month

Raise awareness. Fight stigma. Show support.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. Mental Health Awareness Month is a national movement to raise awareness about mental health, fight stigma, educate the public, and support people struggling with mental illness.

Children's Mental Health Awareness Week is May 1-7.

Positive mental health is essential to a child’s healthy development. This week shines a national spotlight on the importance of caring for every child’s mental health. Join Sheppard Pratt in recognizing this observance with the resources below. Join us during Children's Mental Health Awareness Week for a free Family Movie Night!
