Mental Health Awareness Month (or Mental Health Month) is recognized in the United States each May and has been observed every year since 1949. The purpose of Mental Health Month is to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness by raising awareness of mental health conditions and those who have them. At Centerstone, we recognize the importance of positive mental well-being throughout the year, but use the month of May to go the extra mile to show our support for the cause.
Each year, millions of Americans face mental illness. In fact, more than 51 million people experienced mental illness in 2019.
