The following comment was received from Candida Abrahamson and I thought I would feature it here so that it did not get missed.
Many thanks to Candida for reminding us….
Just reminding everyone that May is Mental Health Awareness Month, with two main areas of focus:
1. “Do More for 1 in 4″: A call to help the one in four people with a diagnosable mental illness; and
2. “Healing Trauma’s Invisible Wounds,” looking at the impact of traumatic events on both individuals and communities at large.
Please see Mental Health America for details and downloadable tool kits. Best, Candida
