May is Mental Health Month

by Melissa Hansen, M.S., LPC

This month we remember the many in our country and around the world who are suffering from mental illness. This month we remember those who treat the mentally ill with their compassion, kindness, and dedication. This month we remember that many of us, while not mentally ill, are not as mentally healthy as we would like to be. This month we remember that mental health is as important as physical health and is should be a priority.
