A Guide for Mental Health Awareness Month

As May unfolds, we’re reminded of the importance of Mental Health Awareness Month—a time dedicated to shedding light on mental health challenges and emphasizing the significance of holistic well-being. At HHM Health, we understand that mental health is a vital aspect of overall health, and we’re committed to supporting you on your journey to mental wellness. In this blog post, we’ll explore practical strategies for maintaining good mental health and highlight valuable resources available to you.

Prioritize Self-Care

Self-care is the cornerstone of mental wellness. Here are some simple yet powerful strategies to incorporate into your daily routine:

  • Mindful Moments: Take a few moments each day to practice mindfulness or meditation. Simply pausing to breathe deeply and be present can help alleviate stress and promote mental clarity.
  • Nourish Your Body: Fuel your body with nutritious foods that support brain health. Aim for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. If you are in need of guidance, please schedule a time to talk to our Registered Dietitian.
  • Move Your Body: Regular physical activity isn’t just beneficial for your physical health—it’s also a mood booster. Find activities you enjoy, whether it’s walking, yoga, dancing, or gardening, and make movement a regular part of your life.
  • Rest and Recharge: Prioritize adequate sleep by establishing a consistent sleep schedule and creating a relaxing bedtime routine. Quality sleep is essential for mental and emotional well-being.

Cultivate Supportive Relationships

Strong social connections are essential for mental health. Nurture your relationships with friends, family, and supportive peers by:

  • Connecting Authentically: Reach out to loved ones regularly, even if it’s just a quick phone call or text message. Share your thoughts and feelings openly and be there to listen when others need support.
  • Joining Community Groups: Seek out local support groups or community organizations where you can connect with others who share similar experiences or interests. Building a sense of belonging can provide valuable emotional support.
  • Seeking Professional Help: Don’t hesitate to reach out to our mental health professional if you’re struggling. Therapists, counselors, and psychiatrists are trained to provide effective support and guidance tailored to your individual needs. Visit the Behavioral Health and Psychiatry page for more information.

Access Mental Health Resources

Knowing where to turn for help is essential. Here are some resources available to support your mental health journey:

  • Therapy and Counseling Services: At HHM Health, offer a range of mental health services, including therapy and counseling sessions with licensed professionals both in person and virtually. Don’t hesitate to reach out to schedule an appointment.
  • 24/7 Helplines: If you need immediate support, confidential helplines are available around the clock to provide crisis intervention and emotional support.
  • Online Resources: Explore reputable mental health websites and online forums where you can find information, resources, and peer support from the comfort of your own home.

Raise Awareness and Break Stigma

Let’s work together to challenge the stigma surrounding mental health and promote open, honest conversations. By sharing our stories and experiences, we can reduce stigma and foster a culture of acceptance and support.


During Mental Health Awareness Month and beyond, remember that your mental health matters. By prioritizing self-care, cultivating supportive relationships, accessing resources, and advocating for mental health awareness, you’re taking proactive steps toward a happier, healthier life.

At HHM Health, we’re here to support you every step of the way. Together, let’s prioritize mental wellness and empower each other to thrive.
