The month of May is recognized as “Mental Health Month.”

The month of May is recognized as “Mental Health Month.” According to Mental Health America (MHA), “Since 1949, MHA and its affiliates across the country have led the observance of May is Mental Health Month by reaching millions of people through the media, local events and screenings.” In recent years Therapeutic Services Agency, Inc. has joined the cause!

MHA’s theme for this year’s observance was Fitness #4Mind4Body, highlighting the interconnectedness of one’s mental health to their physical, emotional and social health. As a way to recognize May as Mental Health Month, TSA encouraged staff to participate in various wellness challenges that were all part of weekly themes. We had a total of 30 staff complete a combined total of 243 challenges throughout the month! Pictured below are two, extremely well hydrated staff who completed the “drink a gallon of water in a day for three days” challenge.
