May is Mental Health Month

May 22, 2018, 08:05 AM

At GRMC, we don’t just care about your heart health, or merely your liver health or only your circulatory health—we care about your whole health. And that includes mental health.

Each May since 1949, efforts have been made by Mental Health America to spread the word that mental health is something everyone should care about—for themselves and for loved ones. Their focus this year is a Fitness 4Mind4Body Challenge. Learn more about the importance of diet and nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress and how these impact mental health for everyone.

According to Mental Health America, one in five adults has a mental health condition. Let’s work to break the stigmas associated with mental illness. There is power in knowledge and sharing. If you know someone with a mental health condition, offer your support and share your concern with them. If you feel you’re battling with your own mental health, reach out to your primary care provider or speak with a therapist. Your whole health matters; you’re amazing. Know how much you matter to this world.
