Mental Health Month


Mental Health America has been leading the observance of May as Mental Health Month since 1949. We are joining their efforts to spread the important message that mental health is something everyone should care about. The theme for 2020 builds on the theme of Tools 2 Thrive by exploring such topics as owning your feelings, finding the positive, eliminating toxic influences, creating healthy routines, and supporting and connecting with others as ways to boost mental health and general wellness.

We have included many resources from Mental Health America below as well as articles and resources from Boys Town experts.
