May is Mental Health Month

This month, we celebrate mental health month by sharing important and valuable resources for self-care, peer and professional mental health support.

May is mental health month, and we see it as a good opportunity for everyone to stop and take a moment to check in on themselves.  Start with how you feel physically.   Are you finding yourself more and more tired?  Headaches?   Are you struggling with your appetite?  Are you having difficulty focusing on what you need to do at work or at home day to day? Do you find your thoughts are pessimistic, or that you are regularly feeling bad about yourself?  If you found yourself answering yes to any of these questions, or feel your mental health is suffering, or if you are supporting a loved one who is undergoing a mental health struggle of their own: we encourage you to build knowledge and a support network to help address your concerns, as well as shore up and reinforce your strengths.   Below is a list of educational resources and support networks to explore:


If you are looking for long term therapy, you can work either through your insurance provider’s list, which you can acquire by calling the member services support number on your insurance card.    You may also use the following online resources to search for a therapist in your area.

As always, employees, retirees, and their families may always reach out to the EAP for free confidential counseling and long term mental health referrals.  We also encourage you to browse our resource list for more.  From all of us, have a good month.
