May is National Mental Health Awareness Month. We have to ask…do you know what mental health is?

MentalHealth.gov defines it this way:

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including: biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry; life experiences, such as trauma or abuse; family history of mental health problems.

We know that mental health challenges are common but treatment is the key to getting better and recovery is possible.  The biggest challenge is often starting the conversation! With that in mind, we’ve created a magnificent adult coloring book – designed to help you #ShareTheHope! It’s currently available for download on our website for a donation of $8.00 or more. Make your donation HERE

Raising awareness doesn’t have to be hard. Print a coloring book for yourself & one for a friend. Spend some time together talking, maybe even over a cup of coffee! Allow yourselves to be real about your stressors – and discuss ways to reach out when it’s more than you can handle alone! Connection is an important part of mental health. We’re thrilled to inspire even a tiny part of that in life! #ShareTheHope because no one should face mental illness alone!
