May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in May in the United States since 1949.

While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, everyone faces challenges in life that can impact their mental health.

Our current Mentor Monthly edition contains helpful videos you can watch with your mentee and discuss how sleep and diet can affect mental health.

Mentor of the Month

May’s Mentor of the Month is Kimberly Jefferson!

“I believe the key to being a quality mentor is commitment. I feel if you sign up for something that you should stand firm in doing all of the things that you are required to do. That means supporting, being available, holding yourself accountable, being inspirational and influential.”
