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 2019 builds on the theme of #4Mind4Body by exploring such topics as animal companionship, spirituality, humor, work-life balance, and recreation and social connections 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
