May is Mental Health Month!
All month long we will be posting resources, news and activities as well as, Wellness Tips on Facebook and Twitter. In addition, we are inviting the community to a Lunch and Learn to discuss mental health topics towards the end of the month (Date and Time TBD). We invite you to check back often and ask yourself the question, "How is my mental health?"

May 9th is Childrens Mental Health Awareness Day. Listed below are some fantastic resources from SAMHSA, and IMHP,
Another great new resource is the WhatsMyM3 anonymous, Free 3-Minute Test for Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Did you know that having a mood disorder may increase your heart attack risk and decrease your ability to recover from other illnesses like stroke, diabetes, multiple sclerosis and cancer?
Your M3 score is a number that will help you and your doctor understand if you have a treatable mood disorder, like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or PTSD. You can even monitor you score to see how your mental health is changing over time.
Knowing your M3 score can help you take control of your mental health. Take the test here: http://whatsmym3.com/Default.aspx
