Community Bridges, Inc. (CBI) Celebrates Mental Health Awareness Month

 

Since 1949, May has been observed as Mental Health Awareness Month, a month intended to increase awareness of mental health issues globally and to mobilize efforts of support. As an integrated behavioral health provider, CBI Team Members are on the front lines of the mental health crisis in various communities. As we honor their hard work and sacrifice as mental healthcare workers, it is equally important that as an organization, we prioritize our own mental health as well.

During Mental Health Awareness Month, we should use this as an opportunity to check-in with ourselves to evaluate our mental health, utilizing our resources within our community and check in with our healthcare provider to address any concerns we may have.

Talking openly about mental health is invaluable and cannot be underscored.

Open discussion with a trusted friend, loved one, or mental healthcare worker can encourage suffering individuals to seek help, and reduce the misconceptions and stigma around mental health.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), nearly one in five adults in America are living with a serious mental illness. This suggests that mental health is a commonplace that should be rid of shame or judgment. While some individuals are more vulnerable than others, everyone faces obstacles in life that impacts them in various ways.

We encourage everyone to practice mindfulness, engage in meditation, exercise, show gratitude, find a new hobby, or attend a mental health seminar. Any activity that supports your mental health or simply brings you joy is highly encouraged and has been proven to provide positive outcomes. No matter what activities you choose to partake in, we want you to prioritize your mental health and encourage others to do the same.
