Mental Health Awareness Month
What does it mean to be mentally healthy? The answer is different for everyone. With all the extra anxiety that many of us have experienced since 2020, whether from uncertainty about COVID-19 or from other experiences that may be new to us, it’s important to acknowledge that it’s alright to not feel alright. Fortunately, there are numerous resources that are available locally, nationally, and in some cases through your workplace or benefits package. We might start by finding out what makes us feel better. For some, it is a brisk walk outside, a yoga class, talking to a friend, or finding a sympathetic therapist. The possibilities are endless. Let’s take this month to think about what WE need.
