Take advantage of support during Mental Health Month

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act every day. But mental health is often ignored until something goes wrong.

Experts recommend actively monitoring your mental state — even when you’re feeling good — and learning how to recognize the signs and symptoms of someone struggling.

During this year’s Mental Health Month, challenge yourself to learn more about mental health and how you can support yourself and others. Start by visiting IU’s Workplace Mental Health website, then check out these mental-health-themed resources and activities for each week in May.

Week 1: Mental Health Is Health

Week 2: Self-Care

Week 3: Build Connections and Help Others

Week 4: Find Resources and Help
