May is National Mental Health Month

Mental Health Awareness Month

South Tabor Family Physicians encourages you to talk about mental health with your loved ones and peers

Here are three simple things you can do to take care of yourself and your loved ones in support of mental health awareness month from “National Today“‘s website:

  1. Take care of yourself

    Life has numerous ups and downs. Some are solvable but others not so much. When your mental health acts up, seek the right treatment and make yourself better because, after all, life has much more to offer than just pain and suffering.

  2. Take care of your loved ones

    Check up on your friends and family. Many times, all people need is a shoulder to cry on and/or an ear to listen. Support and encourage them if they are being treated for any mental problems.

  3. Talk about mental health

    One of the best ways to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month is by talking about it with your peers. The more you talk about it, the more normalized it will become. This is one of the aims of the month as the stigma attached to mental health has led to countless delays in treatment AND research on the matter.
