It’s here! It’s finally here! My Mental Health Day 2012 is finally upon us and in full swing this beautiful Saturday May 26th. Remember what today is truly all about—boosting YOUR mental health. Whether it’s playing in the sunshine or watching Saturday cartoons with your children or shopping with your best friend, we invite you to take part in whatever activity makes you smile a little bit more today.
Sometimes, it’s important to remember to take a moment for yourself. Step away from your weekend chores for an hour or two and give yourself permission to relax. Regularly, “mental health” is associated and stigmatized as “illness.” Often, we forget that mental health is actually about WELLNESS and finding a certain peace of mind.
Today we invite you to find your own balance. Please share with us your plans for My Mental Health Day on our Facebook page. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out our wellness tips or need some activity ideas for My Mental Health Day, there’s still time to visit the My Mental Health Day Blog. And remember that throughout the day we will be announcing the winners of our 40-plus raffle prize winners on our Facebook page and streaming more mental health tips on our Twitter feed.
