May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May 1, 2018

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. As we bring awareness to an important topic, we look at the intersection of mental health awareness and health equity – behavior health equity. Health equity is achieved when each person has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible, regardless of ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, geographic location, and socioeconomic status and social conditions. Behavioral health equity focuses on mental health, substance use conditions and disorders. Visit AHA.org for more information on Mental Awareness Month.
