What YOU Can Do for Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Month. This year, Mental Health First Aid USA is taking the opportunity to spread information on social media about how mental illness and addiction affect some key populations — and what we ALL can do to help. Because anyone, anywhere can be the difference for someone facing a mental health or substance use challenge.

How can you participate?

  1. Share these graphics. We’ve created a series of infographics highlighting some common mental health challenges facing key populations. Share them on your own social media channels, and follow us on Twitter to see what we’re saying!
  2. Encourage everyone to get trained in Mental Health First Aid during Mental Health Month and beyond by, because the difference between crisis and recovery or life and death for someone facing a mental health challenge can be one person who knows how to notice and respond to warning signs. YOU can be the difference in someone’s life.
