Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in the U.S. since 1949. Every year during the month of May, NAMI joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. Together, we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support the millions of people in the U.S. affected by mental illness. Read below to learn more about how you can get involved.
This year, NAMI is celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month with the More Than Enough campaign!
It’s an opportunity for all of us to come together and remember the inherent value we each hold — no matter our diagnosis, appearance, socioeconomic status, background or ability. We want every person out there to know that if all you did was wake up today, that’s more than enough. No matter what, you are inherently worthy of more than enough life, love and healing. Showing up, just as you are, for yourself and the people around you is more than enough.
Join the #MoreThanEnough Campaign
Throughout the month, we invite you to share with us on social media why you are more than enough by tagging us (@NAMICommunicate) and using our hashtag #MoreThanEnough. Feel free to also bookmark this webpage, as we’ll be adding more resources and ways to get involved as the month gets closer.
