Webinar: Increasing mental health awareness through community outreach: Mental Health Month 2021
Since 1949, Mental Health America and our affiliates across the country have observed May is Mental Health Month by reaching out to millions of people through the media, local events, and screenings. Each year, MHA releases a May is Mental Health Month toolkit that includes sample communications materials as well as printable handouts and worksheets. The 2021 toolkit is focused on the theme Tools 2 Thrive, providing practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase their resiliency regardless of their personal situation.
We invite other organizations to join us in spreading the word that mental health is something everyone should care about by using the May is Mental Health Month toolkit materials and conducting awareness activities in your own communities.
Join us for this 60-minute webinar where we will discuss:
- What’s included in MHA’s 2021 Mental Health Month toolkit;
- How to use the toolkit content on social media to promote Mental Health Month;
- Examples of outreach events to increase mental health awareness; and
- How community-based organizations have used these materials.
