Meridian is excited to take this opportunity to come together with the community during Mental Health Awareness Month; and further raise awareness about mental illness. May provides a time in which individuals and organizations across the nation unify in events, activities, and campaigns in order to spread the word on mental illness. This month we encourage all to join us in shedding light on mental health issues and supporting the 60 million Americans affected by mental illness in the United States. In addition, Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week is May 4-10, and May 8 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. Meridian is proud to join the nation in supporting the 1 in 4 adults, and 1 in 10 children, affected by mental illness by educating the community and promoting a vision of wellness within reach.
