May is National Mental Health Awareness Month! As an organization dedicated to the tenants of Social-Emotional Learning that also means we're dedicated to mental health awareness and well-being.
SEL and mental health are not the same, however, SEL does promote positive mental health. One of our hopes for our communities is that they can develop these social-emotional skills thereby leading to healthy decisions, an increase in self-confidence, and generally being able to have the tools to support themselves and others.
Addressing the mental health needs and systems that exist in our society is vital to creating peace and prosperity. First, we need to be able to spread awareness about this importance and break the stigma associating with discussing mental health. Mental health affects everyone across all backgrounds.
