May is Mental Health Awareness Month

One Behavioral Health Association (OBHA) joins Mental Health America (MHA) in recognizing Mental Health Month. MHA founded May is Mental Health Month back in 1949 to raise awareness about mental health conditions and the importance of good mental health for everyone. This year marks 70 years of celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month! Last year, Mental Health Month materials were seen and used by over 30 million people, with more than 16,000 entities downloading MHA’s tool kit.

MHA’s 2019 theme expands upon last year’s theme of 4Mind4Body and
explores the topics of animal companionship, spirituality and religion, humor, work-life balance, recreation, and social connections as ways to boost mental health and general wellness.
