May is Mental Health Month
The global pandemic presented challenges and obstacles that tested our strength and resiliency. In the last year, we were forced to cope with situations we never imagined and, as a result, many of us struggled with our own mental health and well-being.
That’s why Cabarrus County is highlighting #Tools2Thrive - what individuals can do throughout their daily lives to prioritize mental health, build resiliency and continue to cope with the obstacles of COVID-19.
During the month of May, we are focusing on different topics that can help you process events of the past year and the feelings that surround them. They'll also help you build skills and find support beyond COVID-19.
It’s important to remember that change won’t happen overnight. Instead, focus on small changes to move through the stressors of the past year. Develop long-term strategies to support yourself on an ongoing basis.
Start prioritizing your mental health by taking a quick, free and confidential mental health screening at MHAscreening.org.
This Mental Health May, Cabarrus County wants to remind everyone that mental illnesses are real and recovery is possible. By developing your own #Tools2Thrive, it is possible to balance life’s ups and downs and continue to cope with the challenges brought on by the pandemic.
