Mental Health Matters Month 2018 Toolkit
Deeper Connections: From Small Talk to Real Talk
Welcome to the 2018 Each Mind Matters/SanaMente toolkit for May is Mental Health Matters Month. With the theme of “Deeper Connections: From Small Talk to Real Talk,” we’re focusing on strengthening social support networks, which research suggests can contribute to a healthier, happier life. Additionally, we are excited to offer our first fully bilingual toolkit in English and Spanish, aligned with our efforts to better reach California’s diverse Latino population through SanaMente: el Movimiento de Salud Mental de California.
Below you will find links to all of the items in the 2018 toolkit, including files to share via email, social media and by printing. You can also download the toolkit on the Each Mind Matters Resource Center. And if you missed the Each Mind Matters webinar about the toolkit and examples of how other county and community agencies are celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month, you can view the slides and recording here. Check back on our website throughout April and May as we’ll be uploading more helpful tools. If you have any questions, please email: [email protected].
