Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in the U.S. since 1949. Each year, millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. In May, Alamo Heights United Methodist Church joins NAMI in the national movement to raise awareness about mental health.
NAMI fights stigma, provides support, educates the public and advocates for policies that support people with mental illness and their families. Mental Health Awareness Month provides a perfect opportunity for AHUMC and the NAMI Alliance to shine a spotlight on spreading helpful mental health resources and information on local programs and a chance to encourage people to take action.
