Mental Health Matters to Me
Think about mental health…what comes to mind?
What many people imagine is not mental health – it’s mental illness. Depression and disorders. The extremes. Above all, people tend to imagine someone else. Somewhere else. Someone different.
But these initial impressions only tell part of the story, and it’s time to rethink mental health. Because mental health matters – for all of us. Mental health is more than our struggles, it is our ability to realize our capabilities. To connect with others. To build strong relationships and achieve our goals.
“Mental Health Matters to Me” is one of MHA’s most important initiatives with three clear goals:
Building Awareness in an effort to break down the stereotypes and stigmas that stand in the way of so many who need and seek help.
Engaging Individuals, Organizations, Business and Government Agencies in MHA’s efforts to build a strong foundation of emotional wellness for our whole community.
Securing long term sustainability for an organization that is at the heart of a healthy community.
Here are ways that you can stand up and say “Mental Health Matters to Me!”
