May 2022 - What's Happening @ LWLC: Mental Health Month

Mental Health Month

May has been the designated Mental Health Awareness Month since 1949. Every year, the "theme" for the month changes. For 2022, the theme is:  "Back to Basics". The primary goals of Mental Health Awareness Month are to build public recognition about how important mental health is to the overall health and wellness of the human body.


The theme's goal is to provide foundational knowledge about mental health & mental health conditions and information about what people can do if their mental health is a cause for concern.
