According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, one in five adults experience mental illness each year. Taking care of your mind is just as important as taking care of your body. In honor of Mental Illness Awareness Week (Oct. 4-10) and National Depression and Mental Health Screening month in October, we wanted to share some important resources related to mental health that contain valuable information, tools, and resources that you can share with your patient populations, colleagues, family, friends, etc.
NCFH also has COVID Resources for Mental Health specific to the agricultural worker population available. We encourage you to utilize these resources to educate and inform others about mental illness and the importance of taking care of one’s mental health.
Join us in reducing the stigma and start a courageous conversation!
