May is National Mental Health Awareness Month! Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. During May, NAMI and the rest of the country are raising awareness of mental health. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for policies that support people with mental illness and their families. Show us how you care through awareness, support and advocacy. Share information, images and graphics to tell others what #WhyCare means to you.
