May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May 1st through May 31st 2023

Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in the U.S. since 1949. Millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness each year.  During May, NAMI joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health.  Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public, and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families/caregivers.

Mental Health Awareness Month provides a perfect opportunity for the NAMI Alliance to shine a spotlight on spreading helpful mental health resources, information on local programs, and initiatives to encourage people to take action through efforts, such as voting for mental health or advocating for improving our nation’s crisis response system.

Want some fun ways to support Mental Health Awareness Month?  Get your green on!  During the month of May, show us how you support mental health by wearing green (t-shirt, pants, hat, makeup, shoes, etc.) OR light up green.  Change your inside/outside lightbulb to green to show your community you support mental health. 

Take a photo and share it with us on IG @namipinellas, use #GoGreen4MH, and have fun!
