May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Nearly one in five Americans live with a mental health condition, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Many factors come into play when it comes to your mental health, such as your neighborhood, your daily routine, and your genetics. According to the American Hospital Association, this is a time to raise awareness of and reduce the stigma surrounding behavioral health issues, as well as highlight the ways in which mental illness and addiction can affect all of us. Recently, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under the Biden Administration launched "988," the Suicide Prevention Lifeline. It’s important to remember that you are not alone.
