According to its website, since 1949 Mental Health America has observed May is Mental Health Month by reaching out to millions of people through the media, local events, and screenings. Like many other organizations, Project Access is helping to spread the word that mental health is something everyone should care about.

We’re most likely in agreement that 2020 challenged the mental health of all of us, affecting each of us in profound and individual ways. Considering what we’ve been through together, it’s more critical than ever that we work together to eradicate any lingering stigmas associated with mental health struggles.

Here at Project Access our Wellness Checks, via Resident Services, help to inform Residents and educate them on how best to self-care and seek help in regard to possible mental and emotional issues. Our services help Residents address the following scenarios:

  • Identify warning signs
  • Trauma and stress
  • Anger and frustration
  • Avoiding thinking traps
  • Processing change
  • Allowing time for self-care

Like us, we hope you’ll take the last few days of May to evaluate you mental well-being and takes any necessary steps to seek help or self-improvements. Your family and friends will be grateful.
