Boston: May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Trending...
May is recognized each year as Mental Health Awareness Month. In the wake of over a year of global disruption, societal conflict, and forced isolation due to the pandemic, mental health resources have never been in higher demand. Take an honest look at yourself, how are you feeling today? How has this week been? Have you noticed any changes that concern you? For example, are you feeling anxious at strange or inappropriate-feeling times? Or maybe you have recently and inexplicably lost interest in activities that you once enjoyed?

It may be helpful to explore some mental health websites or speak with a professional counselor to get perspective on what you are experiencing and work actively towards improving your quality of life. We want to highlight some useful links that focus on your mental health and self-care skills, as well as review essential community support services.
And as always, you can reach out to us at the Employee Assistance Program to speak to a professional counselor for an evaluation, counseling, or assistance with referrals. We are available 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, at 617-635-2200 (https://www.boston.gov/news/tel:617-635-2200), and offer on-call hours from 6 - 8 p.m. Have a safe and healthy month.stats
