Mental Health Awareness Month

Raise Awareness & Combat Stigma Surrounding Mental Health

While one in five people will experience a mental illness over the course of their lives, everyone will face challenges that can and will affect their mental health. Many people who face these challenges will be able to receive help from a professional counselor. In addition to helping those seeking holistic wellness, professional counselors need to be able to care for their own mental health.

During the month of May, the American Counseling Association is proud to join the national movement to raise awareness and combat the stigma surrounding mental health. Here, we present resources and tips to help both counselors and the public focus on their mental health and wellbeing.
