May Educational Meeting — Observing Mental Health Month
Why We Care
Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, NAMI and the rest of the country are raising awareness of mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families.
The WhyCare? campaign is an opportunity to share the importance of care in our relationships to others, in mental health treatment and services and in support and education to millions of people, families, caregivers and loved ones affected by mental illness. Demonstrating how and why we care brings more to awareness by showing our actions and connections to others. Care has the power to make a life-changing impact on those affected by mental health conditions. To download graphics and messages for social media, please click here
Care is a simple 4-letter word, but a powerful way to change lives for people affected by mental illness. We recognize Mental Health Awareness Month during the month of May to share the many ways we care.
Please join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 in the United Way Community Room located at 240 Elm Street in Cumming for a special program. The program will begin at 7:00 – 8:30 pm.
Our affiliate president, DeLisa Rodney, will provide information on our many programs, share ways you can get involved, and explain why WE CARE.
