May 2020 | May is Mental Health Month

Resolution to Lifestyle

No Matter The Day - It Will Be Music2YourFeet!
-Denise Bryant, Founder

***

May is Mental Health Month, and it has never been more important than this year.

Just weeks ago, we had no idea that all our worlds were going to be turned upside down by the coronavirus. Or that the associated worry, isolation, loneliness, and anxiety would be something that literally everyone – would experience.

Mental health screening is essential during times of stress. Take a screen. And tell your friends to take a screen, too. It is more important than ever to take care of our mental health.

It is important to look forward and to focus on what we need to do to thrive in uncertain times. There are the tools that will also help us do just that.
May you stay safe and well!
