May is Mental Health Awareness Month


May is Mental Health Awareness Month. 

MHANYS works to end the stigma against mental illness and promote mental health wellness through training, education, advocacy and policy, community-based partnerships, and by connecting individuals and families to help. This includes working with schools. 

In 2016, MHANYS successfully advocated for the passage of a law that requires schools to provide mental health education as part of the health curricula, and we are committed to supporting educators and schools through implementation. As students have a better understanding of their own mental health and that of their family and peers, MHANYS believes that it is imperative for educators to also have an understanding of mental health and wellness, for schools to be prepared to respond to the mental health needs of students, and for communities to work together to support access.

Information and resources for working with children and teens coping with COVID can be found below. 

NYProject HOPE:  Coping with Covid helps New Yorkers understand their reaction and emotions during COVID-19.  "Through an emotional support helpline, educational materials, and trusted referrals, NY Project Hope helps people manage and cope with changes brought on by COVID-19."  Because children and teens have unique vulnerabilities during any disaster, the site has a dedicated section addressing the needs of young people, Covid-19 and Youth.
