May is Mental Health Month

For Mental Health Month this year, Mental Health America is encouraging individuals to look around and look within. From your neighborhood to genetics, many factors come into play when it comes to mental health conditions.

Thomas M. Wernert Center and Mental Health America encourage everyone to consider how the world around them affects their mental health.

TMWC aims to raise awareness about mental health and provide opportunities for support, education, and advocacy in Lucas County. According to Mental Health America,

"One of the biggest ways your location can impact your mental health is how easy or hard it is to access the things you need."

This Mental Health Month, challenge yourself to look at your world and how different factors can affect your mental health. To get started, be mindful and start small.


  1. PRACTICE TIDINESS -- Do one thing at a time. Declutter, clean, then organize.
  2. SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS – Work with yourself; if you struggle to wake up in the morning, prepare things the night before.
  3. STAY CONNECTED – Get to know your neighbors. Community connections benefit everyone.
