Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in the U.S. since 1949. Every year during the month of May, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health. NAMI works to fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support the millions of people in the U.S. affected by mental illness.
Common symptoms of mental health in the workplace include:
- Turning up late to work
- Looking tired and seeming stressed
- Having trouble concentrating, making decisions and managing multiple tasks
- Being unusually emotional and getting frustrated with people
- Avoiding social activities
- Sitting alone at lunchtime
- Unable to accept negative feedback
This year, NAMI is celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month with the More Than Enough campaign!
It’s an opportunity for all of us to come together and remember the inherent value we each hold — no matter our diagnosis, appearance, socioeconomic status, background or ability. We want every person out there to know that if all you did was wake up today, that’s more than enough. No matter what, you are inherently worthy of more than enough life, love and healing. Showing up, just as you are, for yourself and the people around you is more than enough.
