May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Updated: May 2

By: Leah Molloy, School Counselor

For more than 65 years, May has been observed as National Mental Health Awareness Month by organizations such as the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Mental Health America (MH). Of course mental health is important

all year-round, but emphasizing these issues in May gives us the chance to come together as a school community to show our support and efforts for those who suffer from mental health challenges or live with a mental illness.


During the month of May, I would like to challenge all St. B's families to make small positive changes in your life that can benefit your mind and your body. You may be surprised by how much positive impact one small change can have on your life, especially during this time of uncertainty.


Check out this calendar from The National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health to help your family get started.
