In the United States and in many other parts of the world, the month of May is observed as the Mental Health Awareness Month (or, sometimes, Mental Health Month). The purpose of Mental Health Awareness Month is to raise awareness and educate the public about mental illnesses. This year the Month is observed with the theme “Tool 2 Thrive”. The idea is to provide practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase resiliency regardless of the situations they are dealing with.
