May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Did you know your mental health is just as important as your physical health? Many patients living with chronic illness suffer from depression, anxiety and other types of mental health conditions. AAIDA would like to help break the stigma often associated with mental health. AAIDA would like to support those who face depression or other mental health conditions by bringing awareness to the challenges patients or caregivers often face while living with these conditions. During the month of May, we ask that you visit the National Alliance of Mental Health (NAMH) or other healthcare sites to learn more and get involved with local events near you to help us break this stigma.
