May is Mental Health Awareness Month

NAMI Mid-Hudson recognizes May as Mental Health Awareness Month. This year, United Way of Dutchess and Orange Counties, in partnership with NAMI Mid-Hudson, is proud to recognize May as “Mental Health Awareness Month.” Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition.

During May, NAMI Mid-Hudson joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with a mental health condition and their families. This year it is needed more than ever due to the impact the Pandemic has had on Mental Health.

Unfortunately, since there is a stigma that is often attached to mental health needs, we need to take this opportunity to promote wellness and resilience. May opens the doors to talking about it and sharing news with family members, friends and neighbors.

NAMI Mid-Hudson continues to play a leadership role with support from our community in providing awareness, education and family support to individuals and family members. Mental health wellness is for everyone, and there is support and practical evidence based tools that one can use to improve mental health. There is no physical health without mental health.

NAMI Mid-Hudson is asking for your support and to join our activities to promote family stability and community wellness. Please follow the events on our website as well as the live links on the flyer to our social media accounts for updates.
