¡Mayo es el Mes Nacional de Concientización sobre la Salud Mental!

En mayo, concienciamos y aprendemos sobre la importancia de la salud mental. Buscamos reducir el estigma asociado a las enfermedades mentales y enfatizamos la importancia de buscar ayuda cuando se necesita. Participar en la terapia o grupos de apoyo pueden beneficiar a las personas de todas las edades, incluyendo los niños. Mire este vídeo para saber más sobre la salud mental y la terapia. ¿Busca recursos para los jóvenes? El Paquete de Autoayuda tiene muchos recursos útiles que apoyan a niños y jóvenes con su salud mental. Mire vídeos para jóvenes sobre estrategias de autoayuda, técnicas de distracción, y mucho más. ¿Quiere saber más? Visite la página de Salud Mental, donde encontrará otros vídeos y folletos sobre este tema importante.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

In 1949, Mental Health Awareness Month was established in the United States to raise awareness and educate the public about different mental illnesses while reducing the stigma associated with mental health. Assisting clients with locating mental health resources is a vital part of USCRI’s mission. NAMI provides free, highly beneficial support groups for families in which participants can engage virtually or in-person. Don’t forget to visit UC Resource Center’s Mental Health Page for providers to review the warning signs and symptoms of a mental health condition, suicide risk assessment, and other useful resources on this important topic.

USCRI’s Rinconcito del Sol, “a little corner of sunshine,” located in Florida, is a shelter for unaccompanied girls between the ages of 13-17. This is a place where children can recover, get stronger, and become more prepared for the journey that lies ahead for them.
