Greetings MHA Family,

It has been over a year since our world changed due to a global pandemic. Many of us have suffered significant losses, personally or professionally. To each of you, we send our thoughts for a brighter future. The stories continue to move and inspire us to make our resources, programming, and tools the most efficient for people of all ages. We appreciate each of you in helping us change the conversation around mental health.

As we begin May, we celebrate MENTAL HEALTH MONTH. Now more than ever, reducing stigma is critical. With your help, we can eliminate the barriers that prevent us, loved ones, and friends from getting the support they need in the time that they need it. It starts with YOU!

In this newsletter, you will find the following to help bring our mental wellness to light. I encourage you to take the time to check in on yourself and your community. It takes all of us to create a mentally healthy county.

In this issue:

Enjoy your spring!  Please reach out with any questions, concerns, or if you want to learn more about our initiatives.

Best Regards,

Support Not Stigma

Support Group Highlight: THRIVE

Providing a safe place to make connections with women who have shared experiences with chronic pain. Peer support can increase hope, give perspective, and provide a sense of belonging. This group is a place to find understanding, acceptance and validation. We show support for each other through: confidentiality, mutuality, compassion, active listening, presence, and respect for all. Click below to meet the group's facilitators Anna and Beth and find out more!
