Mental Health Awareness Month at Glick

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, an important time for educating communities on mental health and recognizing national efforts to support those who need it. Established in 1949, the awareness initiative helps remind us to take our mental well-being seriously and recognize those who have overcome or are still facing invisible mental struggles. Whatever you may be going through or if you’re looking to offer resources to someone you know, it’s important to remember you are not alone.

National Resources

For our residents and their families, there are many organizations that support mental health needs. Listed below here are a few nationwide resources for a wide range of needs, including crisis services, youth/young adults focused, grief support, and disability support.

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services agency that is helping to support and advance our country’s behavioral health. They offer a suicide & crisis hotline, a veterans crisis hotline, and disaster distress hotline. For substance abuse support, harm reduction help, or recovery assistance, visit their help page here.

The Mental Health Coalition

The Mental Health Coalition, an initiative made up of leading mental health organizations, provides a resource library to help take care of a loved one, learn coping skills, or seek community and professional support. The library has extensive information within areas of addiction, anxiety & stress, coping skills, eating disorders, grief support, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, and suicide prevention. Along with written articles with tips and advice, there are online communities for different needs to connect with likeminded individuals. Read more in their library here.
