May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Join us to spread awareness about mental health and to help break the stigma by taking part in a 31-Day Mental Health Challenge.

Throughout this challenge, the community is encouraged to perform a daily task that can help us all learn more about good mental health habits, what mental health resources are available locally and ways to reach out to our family, friends, coworkers and community members struggling with mental health because Each Mind Matters.
