Welcome to another edition of Facing it Friday! As we continue our journey through Mental Health Awareness Month, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported the Let’s Face It campaign and shown their commitment to Mental Health Awareness in Connecticut. Your dedication and passion are truly inspiring.

This year, we’ve seen an incredible outpouring of support from community partners, staff, committee members, and individuals and businesses across the state. These efforts demonstrate a powerful collective commitment to making mental health a priority for everyone. From organizing events to spreading awareness through social media, every action taken helps break the stigma surrounding mental health and encourages those struggling to seek help.

May 2024 marks a special month for Mental Health Awareness in Connecticut. Across the state, people are coming together to champion this vital cause. Here are some ways you can get involved and show your support:

Request a Lawn Sign

One of the most visible ways to support Mental Health Awareness Month is by displaying a lawn sign in front of your residence or business. These signs are more than just symbols; they are statements of solidarity and commitment to prioritizing mental health in our communities.

By placing a lawn sign, you send a powerful message to your friends and neighbors that mental health matters. It’s a simple yet impactful way to foster a supportive environment and spark important conversations.

Spread the Word

Awareness starts with a conversation. Use your social media platforms to share information about Mental Health Awareness Month. Post about the Let’s Face It campaign, share mental health resources, or simply offer words of encouragement to those who might be struggling. Every post can make a difference.

You can also encourage local businesses and organizations to get involved. Whether it’s through sponsorship, hosting events, or simply putting up a lawn sign, every bit of support helps amplify the message.

Facing it Together

Facing mental health challenges is not something anyone should have to do alone. By coming together, we can create a supportive and understanding community. The Let’s Face It campaign is about more than just awareness; it’s about action, compassion, and unity.

We are incredibly grateful for the support we’ve received so far, and we look forward to continuing this journey with you. Let’s keep the momentum going throughout May and beyond. Together, we can make a difference.

Thank you for being part of this vital movement. Let’s face it, together.
