May is Mental Health Month!

 

Mental Health America has recognized May as Mental Health Month for the past 65 years, with the goals of building public recognition about the importance of mental health to overall health and wellness; informing people of the ways that the mind and body interact with each other; and providing tips and tools for taking positive actions to protect mental health and promote whole health.

In recognition of Mental Health Month in Gallatin County, Gallatin Mental Health Center (GMHC) is providing several free educational opportunities to which the public is cordially invited. Each seminar and presentation will cover a unique and relevant topic related to mental health, treatment and recovery.

In addition, GMHC is hosting its first ever 5k Hustle for Hope Walk/Run on Saturday, May 31. Tell your friends and be sure to sign up at the link below!
