May is Mental Health Month and at MHANYS we are offering several no costs webinars and panel discussions. In addition, we are urging everyone to take the mental health pledge to support mental health and receive access to our mental health toolkit to share. Last year, we had almost 1500 people take the pledge. We hope to increase the numbers his year.
Please join us in supporting mental health across New York State
