Support Mental Health Awareness Month In L.A. County
By Sentinel News Service
Published May 19, 2016


May is nationally recognized as Mental Health Awareness Month, a time for people across the nation to come together to spread awareness about the importance of mental health and to speak out against the stigma associated with having a mental illness. Events planned in Los Angeles County and throughout California will offer mental health information and resources and provide ways for everyone to join Each Mind Matters: California’s Mental Health Movement, a community of individuals and organizations dedicated to a shared vision of mental wellness and equality.

“Studies show that at least twenty percent of those in our community are personally affected by mental health challenges,” said LACDMH Acting Director Robin Kay, Ph.D. “Mental Health Awareness Month is an opportunity for everyone to help by speaking out against the stigma associated with mental illness that prevents those struggling with mental health challenges from seeking and receiving the help they need. Early support and help for mental health challenges can reduce suffering and save lives.”


Individuals can pledge their support at Follow Each Mind Matters on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates about Mental Health Matters Month and California’s Mental Health Movement for more information.
