Illinois Mental Health and Trauma Informed May Awareness Campaign

May is Mental Health and Trauma Awareness Month. The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign School of Social Work and BHWELL program are proud to partner with the Illinois Light Initiative and others across Illinois to raise awareness around mental health and trauma.
