It's the first week of May...this may mean few things depending on who you are. Maybe there's a bounce in your step at the early signs of spring, maybe you're feeling a little excitement and nervousness for an upcoming race you probably haven't trained enough for, or maybe you're looking forward to discussing mental health and wellness as part of 2016 Mental Health Week!
Mental Health Week is a great excuse to talk about mental health in any form to colleagues, friends, family and other people you interact with daily. A simple "happy Mental Health Week!" can get the ball rolling on changing people's perceptions and reducing stigma.
As part of our Mental Health Week initiatives, we've put together tips of the day that we're sharing on our twitter account (@corporatemh). Here are the three we've shared so far this week, and a few more resources for getting you there. It's not too late to start implementing these even though it's Wednesday! May the 4th be with you today on your mental health week adventures!
