Mental health is important not only to you as an individual, but also with your family, friends, and at your place of work. Mental Health AwarenessWeek is May 4-10, 2015. Use this time to talk amongst your family, friends and co-workers about issues related to mental health. Each and every one of us encounters struggles within our daily lives. A person can struggle with changes in mood, energy, sleep, appetite, weight, concentration, attention and self-worth. Talking amongst our natural supports help us to recognize we are not alone. It also helps us to gain support in accessing counselors, social workers, therapists and psychologists when our mental health is significantly impacting our daily function.
