Mental Health Check In
Spring has sprung and most of us have completed our spring cleaning. May is here and it’s mental health awareness month. Let’s take a time out and make sure that we are OK. Check in with that one person you know who is the “strong one.” Call your family and friends to make sure they are doing alright mentally. Yes, even children should have mental health checkups! There is no shame in seeking help for our mental health. If we don’t care for ourselves we can not be available physically or mentally for others that we love ❤️.
Please contact your primary care provider or specialist if you are in need of help. There are also crisis hotlines available via text or phone. Please don’t suffer in silence. #mentalhealthmatters

Suicide Prevention Month
September is Suicide Prevention Month. Have you taken a moment to check on your family and friends? How about checking on the “strongest person that you know?” They need to be checked on as well. We have all been trying to get through this pandemic while still going to school, working, and taking care of home. Stress, anxiety, and depression levels have skyrocketed! Take time out each day for a “mental moment.” Meditate, go for a walk, listen to music, paint, etc. Engaging in these types of positive coping skills can help improve your mental health. If you find yourself participating in negative coping behaviors, please seek help from a mental health professional. There is no shame in doing so!
