May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental health has a huge impact on girls and young women and their ability to lead healthy, fulfilling, and meaningful lives. At Girls Inc., we acknowledge that mental health is as important as physical health, and that mental health issues disproportionately affect marginalized communities such as BIPOC and LGBTQ+ peoples. Learn how Girls Inc. creates a pro-girl environment and visit the Mental Health Coalition site for resources on various mental health topics.
