When you work in the world of mental health, every day is focused on the wellbeing of our clients, callers, and community. We are tireless in our efforts to fulfill MHAGC’s mission of positive mental health for all. Sometimes that work takes place behind a desk, in a meeting, or on the phones. And sometimes the work means taking a step back to look out at the community we serve and open our arms even wider to welcome you into our work. During Mental Health Month, celebrated each year in May, we want to invite you to learn about all the ways you can join us in supporting your own and others’ mental health and wellness.
On May 20, you can join us in person at the Unifying Mental Wellness event at Unity Park in Greenville. We’ll be there with a host of other human service agencies, all focused on wellbeing and community. The event is free and open to the public with food trucks and activities for the whole family!
In addition to this new and exciting event, there are many ways to engage with and support mental health and wellness in our communities and our state. Supporting mental health in your community might be as simple as following MHAGC on social media, sending the MHAGC newsletter sign-up link to a friend or colleague, or chipping in to support our hard working 988 call center workers and volunteers as they take calls, chats, and texts around the clock and from all over our state.
For those seeking a deeper level of engagement, Mental Health Month is the perfect time to consider membership with MHAGC. Prospective new members and those considering renewal alike will find lots of new and useful information on our Membership page. Watch your postal and electronic mailboxes this month, as well, for an invitation to become or renew as a member.
Above all, this Mental Health Month, we want our community to know that we’re here for you. If you’re seeking help for yourself or a loved one, check out the new Federal resource that makes finding that support just a bit simpler. If you are or know a military veteran who could use help, please check out the news story about how MHAGC and other Greenville agencies are supporting veterans. And as always, you can reach out to 988 any day, any time, for any reason.
