Mental Health Awareness Month

Posted by on May 29, 2021

As May comes to an end, we want to talk about the importance of mental health awareness.

Mental Health Awareness

By Diana Casillas 

Mental health has a history of being a stigmatized and unspoken topic, especially in POC households. That’s where it starts; talking about complicated issues is the first step to making a change. While May is mental health awareness month, mental health is a daily struggle and it is important to break the stigma and seek treatment.

Over the years, suicide rates have risen, particularly among young adults. Even more during the COVID-19 pandemic as it has accelerated the already dire crisis, which many mental health professionals have called the “second pandemic”. NALIP wants to remind everyone that they aren’t alone. 

Listed below are some mental health resources. Remember, there is no shame in seeking help.
