May is Mental Health Month

Welcome!   May is Mental Health Month, and it’s a great time to focus on what we are doing (or not) to take care of our mental health and wellness.

CPC has been serving its community for more than 55 years.  Since the first person walked through CPC’s doors in 1960, the Agency has welcomed tens of thousands of children, adults and families who want help to live the healthiest life possible.

Do people with mental health issues recover?  YES.

Can people who live with mental illness achieve their goals for happier, healthier, more productive lives?  YES.

It is worth our time to pay attention to our mental health and take steps to feel better mentally AND physically so we get the most joy and satisfaction from our lives?

You bet it is.

This is May is Mental Health Month, and for us, it’s an opportunity to share some tools and information about living with mental illness and how mental health affects our overall well being. We’ll be posting relevant facts, information and interesting perspectives about mental health throughout the month.  Check back each week for more information about mental health and wellness, living with mental illness and how you can be part of the national conversation, #mentalillnessfeelslike.

RIGHT NOW, get your copy of Mental Health America’s 2016 May is Mental Health Month Calendar, HERE.  Every day, a new fact, tip or exercise to help us focus on taking care of ourselves — especially our overall mental health and well-being.

We hope you will take the time this month to learn more about mental health and wellness and renew your commitment to taking care of yourself. Print out the calendar and post it somewhere where you’ll be sure to reflect on each day’s message.  Talk to your friends and family about what they’re doing to maintain and improve their own overall health and wellness. And remember, you have as much to teach as you have to learn.

Let’s get started!
