Mental Health Awareness Month
The month May of every year is Mental Health Awareness Month! This national month of awareness and action, has been recognized since 1949, as mental health activists and practitioners across the country work to spread the word that mental health is something everyone should care. The purpose of Mental Health awareness Month, is to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness by raising awareness of mental health conditions and those who have them.
Shepherd's RCS and Comfort Angel Foundation joined in spreading the awareness in our community through our unique program to conscientize the people of importance of mental health wellness, and this year turn out was a huge success. Charles Atkins gardens at NE Oklahoma City was our host community.
Special thanks to our staff, volunteers, and the host community for their support in disseminating the information about mental health and substance abuse in our neighborhood.
