LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Hi NSLS family,
Did you know that May is mental health awareness month? It's a time when we’re reminded to be mindful of mental wellness, not just for ourselves, but also our friends and loved ones.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), 1 in 5 adults in the United States experience setbacks due to significant psychological distress. This means that it's likely someone close to you is dealing with mental adversity. So what can you do to help?
There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about mental illness so it's crucial to get the facts. Research and educate yourself on managing stress, anxiety, and depression. You can start by checking out the National Institute of Mental Health's website, which has many mental health resources.
Another way to help is to be there for your loved ones. If you suspect that someone close to you is struggling with mental health, reach out and offer support. Let them know that you're there for them and they don't have to go through it alone. Mental health is a silent crisis, so we must check in with our family and friends from time to time.
Finally, if you're struggling with mental wellness yourself, my suggestions still apply. Reach out to loved ones or mental health professionals and don't be ashamed to admit that you need help. Let's take charge of our mental health, together.
I wish you all a magnificent May.
