Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Since its inception in 1949, Mental Health Awareness Month has been a cornerstone of addressing the challenges faced by millions of Americans living with mental health conditions. SOPHE is proud to support this cause and provide the resources below.

Mental health is a prevalent and persistent problem among the United States’ adolescents. Between 2009 and 2019, 40% more adolescents have experienced persistent feelings
of sadness and hopelessness. Since COVID-19 and the isolation that came with it, this
is even greater. This FREE webinar addresses rising mental health challenges. Samantha Bertomen and Lisa Peters, CHFP introduce an educational and multi-faceted approach
to create a better world for our youth, where mental health is no longer stigmatized,
youth have access to the resources they need, and their health outcomes are improved.
