May 2021 – Mental Health Awareness Month

May 2021 Monthly Focus: Mental Health Awareness Month

Back to Top

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. PTA is dedicated to expanding mental-health supports and services for our kids. As parents, we know what it takes to keep a child physically healthy — nutritious food, exercise, immunizations — but the basics for good mental health aren’t always as clear. The first “basic” is to know that children’s mental health matters. We need to treat a child’s mental health just like we do their physical health, by giving it thought and attention and, when needed, professional help.

If you suspect that someone you care about is struggling with depression, anxiety, or mental health challenges, the best thing you can do is speak up and let them know they are not alone!
Stigma around mental health is one of the primary barriers to people seeking and receiving treatment.  It also prevents parents from getting help for their kids.  The average delay between onset of mental illness symptoms and treatment is 11 years.  Let’s work together to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
We pass along messages about mental illness to our children in small ways every day.  Raise them to be aware, compassionate and accepting.  Luckily, parents and families can do a lot to help create healthy environments that support mental health in our kids!
DYK? 50% of us will experience a mental health challenge in our lifetime.  Learning about mental health will help you understand that those that struggle are still a lot like you – just on a journey in different shoes.
Having a mental illness changes how you think, feel or act and can make it harder to do the things you want to do.  Just like when your body is sick, you should be able to seek help without fear of stigma.  Everyone can help break down stigma by learning and sharing the truth about mental health.
DYK? Half of all mental disorders start by age 14! A parent’s role is critical in early identification, getting access to help and treatment for mental illness.  Mental disorders in children are treatable; early identification and treatment help children reach their full potential. Children’s mental health matters!
Depression is more than “normal” teen moodiness, it is a medical condition that interferes with a child’s life and may have long-lasting symptoms. Mental health matters, and treatment is essential.
Want to be #Stigmafree? Use respectful language to talk about mental health conditions, challenge misconceptions when you see or hear them, see the person, not the illness and offer support if you think someone is having trouble.
Happy Mental Health Month! We’ve all been through a lot lately. As we continue to persevere, let’s find joy in making our mental health a priority.
We all experience emotional ups and downs from time to time caused by events in our lives. Mental health conditions go beyond these emotional swings and are longer lasting. They are medical conditions that cause changes in how we think and feel and in our mood. They are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing. Let’s work together to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.
