May is the USA's Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental Health Awareness Month was started in the United States in 1949 by the Mental Health America organisation (then known as the National Association for Mental Health).
Its goal is to raise awareness and educate the public about: mental illnesses, such as the 18.1% of Americans who suffer from bipolar disorder, depression, and schizophrenia; the realities of living with these conditions; and strategies for attaining mental health and wellness.
It also aims to draw attention to suicide, which can be precipitated by some mental illnesses. Additionally, Mental Health Awareness Month strives to reduce the negative attitudes and misconceptions that surround mental illnesses.
Each year in mid-March Mental Health America releases a toolkit to guide preparation for outreach activities during Mental Health Awareness Month.
During the month of May, Mental Health America, its affiliates, and other organisations interested in mental health conduct a number of activities which are based on a different theme each year.
Mental Health Awareness Month (also referred to as "Mental Health Month") has been observed in May in the United States since 1949, reaching millions of people in the United States through the media, local events, and screenings.
The month is formally acknowledged by US presidential proclamation.
Mental Health America is not the only organisation to run campaigns throughout May. Other similar organisations also choose to host awareness observances that coincide with Mental Health Awareness month.
National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day is such a campaign. This event is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in partnership with other non-profit and advocacy organizations.
Other weeks and months throughout the year are designated to raise awareness around either specific mental health conditions or the mental health of different demographic groups (such as: Minority Mental Health Month, Mental Illness Awareness Week, National Depression Screening Day, etc.).
