Mental Health Awareness Month

It has been observed every May in the United States for over 70
years. The intention of this observance is to increase awareness of the importance of mental health in Americans’ lives and to celebrate how far individuals have come in their mental health journeys. Lee’s Summit CARES intentionally shares resources for mental health, observes the importance of Mental Health Awareness, and highlights partners who focus on these topics year-round.

If you or a loved one is experiencing a mental health emergency,
please dial 988.
