May is Mental Health Month
Since 1949, May has been deemed Mental Health Month by Mental Health America.
MHA was founded in 1909 and is a community-based organization dedicated to assisting those with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all Americans. In fact, there are even two Kansas MHA affiliates located in Kansas City and Wichita.
MHA has provided a 2018 mental health toolkit on their website designed to support members of your community by helping them understand how the health of the body impacts the health of the mind and vice versa.
They also have free fact sheets, posters, and social media materials to help provide tips on nutrition, stress, and other mind/body issues.
Check out their toolkit and materials to discover resources that may be useful when consulting patients at your pharmacy.
