  • May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

    Talking about thoughts, feelings, and mental health can be tough. But sharing our struggles opens the door to help and healing. The Dare to Share campaign features celebrities and kids telling powerful stories about their own challenges and how they found the courage to ask for support. Celebrities include P!nk, Gus Kenworthy and Maisie Williams. When you’re struggling, speaking up can feel scary. But sharing your mental health story can help you get the support you need.
