A Statement from Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney

Fellow Philadelphians:

If you’re feeling anxious or depressed during this unprecedented time, you’re not alone. These feelings can be heightened by illness, isolation, job loss, and uncertainty.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. The City of Philadelphia and Independence Blue Cross are teaming up to help Philadelphians check in with themselves and others. Taking care of our mental well-being is more important than ever.

Go to mindPHLtogether.com to find mental health resources that can help you and your family. Your healthcare provider can also help you get the care you need.

Now more than ever, we have a responsibility to take care of each other. We all can fight stigma and educate and inspire others. So check in with friends and family, and access mental health resources if you need them.

Let’s take care of our mental health—together.
