May is Mental health Awareness Month

Mental health is a level of psychological, emotional, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act, and helps determine how we handle stress and make choice. Positive mental health allows people to realize their full potential, work productively, cope with every day stresses, and make meaningful contribution to their communities. Early signs like feeling helpless or hopeless, experience mood swings, or thinking or harming yourself or others are signs that common with people with mental health issues, but do not be afraid to get help. You can visit the Diana Baldwin Mental Health Clinic at 1211 Chestnut Street, Suite 605, or visit their website https://fight.org/programs/diana-baldwin-clinic/ to call and schedule an appointment with a health care provider if you are experiencing some of these feelings or signs.
