Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. NAMI, Mental Health America and many other organizations around the nation plan special activities during May to inform people about mental illness and to promote mental health.

NAMI Mercer participates in Mental Health Awareness Month by offering special educational meetings, holding our annual NAMIWalk, and events such as special films.
