Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed during May in the United States since 1949. Its purpose is to raise awareness and educate the public about mental illnesses.
This year, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) launched the “WhyCare?” awareness campaign. It emphasizes how the “power of caring” can make a life-changing impact on more than 40 million people in the U.S. who face the daily reality of having a mental health condition.
Join the conversation by sharing why you care, using the hashtags #WhyCare and #NAMIcares, with examples of what you’re doing personally or in your community.
